because you know we'd love to hear your new songs =]
almost merry christmas jade!

Laura. said...

And we've learned that people want to get attacked by a bat while listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. On Arbor Day.

maybe you can name one of the songs after that? XD

Jasmine said...

=O

poor guys.... but i'm so anxious for some new amazing music. *pouts*

NatalyFancyKetchupRox said...

Maybe you should name every song after the days of the week in different languages.

LoveAfterDeath said...

It's cool Jade =]

Susan said...

ha. can't wait to hear whatever you guys may be writing. no rest for the wicked huh - even for the holidays? So much for escaping suitcase living, I had hope for you.

A few more days and I will have escaped my suitcase and be back to shoveling my driveway and doing all the things that librarians do (like shh-ing people and wearing hair buns):) It's funny how some people read while on vacation while I have read just one sad, lonely book the past two weeks. I miss your music too, I usually listen to you all while at work. can't wait for you to give us something wonderful to listen to. hope you take some time to enjoy the holidays.

The caustics won't caustic for me said...

Well congrats to us! I was concerned the bat wasn't going to have some theme music.
Woot to locking yourself away to create. I've been doing that too haha

manz said...

I can't wait anymore T.T I need to hear more awesome music from you guys =]

Marisa said...

Ohh! Very excited for the new songs! Can't wait! But try and take some time out and do something fun too! ;)

said...

thats so crazy................
im gonna do it twice!

yeah i will.
maybe i can have two bats at once.

eww that kinda sounds gross.

oh well.
cant wait to hear the new material.

can we get some new Blaqk Audio music??

ThatOneGirl said...

Hurray new material!

And don't listen to laura. We don't need you having songs with titles long like Fall Out Boy. xD

You must be studyin' us very well, with such findings. :]

Merry Christmas Jade. <3

*hilary said...

write quickly. we fangirls and boys are impatient. :)

burnlikestars said...

basically, :D

i hope you guys are having fun <3

stella said...

Sequestered. Wow, when's the last time I heard that word? Best of luck with the writing process.

punk in writing said...

Good luck with the writing.
I hope it's not all inspired by the season, even if I would love an AFI christmas album. (Oh dear, now I've given you ideas.)

But I can't wait to hear how the AFI-sound will evolve on the new album.

Oh, and if you haven't seen this, check it out.

I never knew electronic music could be this good.

You can discover some pretty nice stuff when you're sequestered at home, fighting off a really nasty cold.

We may not have snow here in Sweden yet, but ice cold winds that cut right through you? Check!

Somnambulist Prose said...

awesome! I'm sure it's all brilliant, whatever you both are brainstorming. Can't wait for number 8! now I'm rhyming..

Synthetika said...

It is 5 AM and you're still getting comments every second.


...Maybe you should give us a peek at the lyrics, hmm?


<3

JHTorkveen said...

Awesome, Jade. Can't wait to hear what new AFI stuff you and Davey got for us =)

By the way, you guys really should come to the Hovefestival next summer and play. Would be totally awesome!

HAZEL!theROCK. :D said...

Theresa said...

Are you guys writing AFI material or BA material? maybe a little of both?

Thanks for keeping us updated Jade...have a wonderful holiday and good luck with the BA shows coming up!!

much love..

snow_vs_asphalt said...

The fact that you wrote "sequestered" - & even that you use the word in daily conversation - pretty much makes my life that much better.

camilla said...

Oh wow, that's awesome... Can't wait to hear the new stuff! (and hopefully no bats will be near, haha...)

Merry Christmas, Jade!

<3

Mina said...

oh bet you two had lots fun there..writing all that stuff!! ;)

xox
>(\\)<

Laughing Lotus said...

Good luck with the new stuff.

Chelley said...

yaaaaay. :)

LydiaT said...

Sequestered, eh? I didn't think people acually used that word outside of singing Bad Religion songs.

I'm joking of course, but all the same, I'm glad to hear the... news, work-a-holics really aren't you two. Good luck with the writing.

kirstie said...

Yay! I can't wait for the next CD to come out! And yes...I think that a peek at the lyrics would be neat-o! Please?

Happy Christmas!

Karlye said...

YAY! This made my day Jade, thank you. Good luck to you and Davey in the writing process. I can't wait for new songs. :]

x0xAFIx0x said...

New songs?? YAY!!!!!!! My friend says hi to Davey btw :)

Yup itz nearly xmas!!!! I'm hopin to see you guys play in San Francisco on New Years Eve. It'll complete my year before it's even started XD

awokennightmare said...

Aren't you going to spend time with your family? It's almost Christmas Jade...

Are the songs for AFI or Blaqk Audio? It's good news either way.

:)

Meg said...

Oh yay! Happy Holidays!

Katie ;] said...

Whoo!

=D

Lynz said...

And we've learned that people want to get attacked by a bat while listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. On Arbor Day.
Wow, that's almost... depressing. Lmao! Me personally, I'd rather get attacked by a flying squirrel while listening to Led Zeppelin's Greatest Hits on Canada Day. ^_^

Mr. Heater said...

I bet bouncing on a bed helps the creative juices flow. Well. It did for me anyways, 'til I broke my futon.

JXH

PS Merry Christmas since i'm cheap and to lazy to say it on the actual day.

Your dedication to the art is to be revered! To sequester oneself to the confines of 4 walls in a hotel, the quotidian and banal rituals that accompany Gypsy living (blahhh), sans loved ones and "my favorite things" that are sorely missed, takes a resolve, a tenacity to be commended! That type of sacrifice and self-abnegation, with the final goal being the enjoyment of others and not only yourself, is just not seen ,unfortunately, in this world today! I know your fans honestly appreciate (and some even seem to have ennobled you all) what you have done for the them! I hope you get to spend some quality time with loved ones this solstice or Holiday. If anyone deserves it, you gentlemen certainly do.

haha.

Alex♥ said...

Although I must admit that sucks for you, I can't say I'm not happy. Yay for new album!

Love you!

natalie! said...

Interesting. Would this new material be for AFI or Blaqk Audio?

Sarah said...

Ooh nice word... "sequester"... hmm.
Sounds like festering in sequins. ...That would certainly make for a slow, sparkly death.

WEiRDO. said...

Hmm.. for Blaqk Audio?

I miss A.F.I.

Cut That said...

This sounds like a familiar scenario...yesssss.

Kayli Puget said...

You two should go out and get some air before you become translucent-skinned wraiths!
I am looking forward to your new songy wongs though; should be goood!
And I don't want to be attacked by a bat on Arbor Day. That's just ridiculous.

Much love as usual.
Have a good Chrim <3
Kayyy xx

Melinda said...

merry christmas and happy 2008! love you guys!

Lacy Cherie said...

So you're not going to be home for Christmas? That must suck :/
But hooray for songwriting.

Amelie said...

Oh hella.
THEY'RE CHRISTMAS INSPIRED?
The answer is yes.

I just hope you put a reasonable time limit on yourself Jade.
three more years until the next CD = whut.
But it doesn't matter, AFI fans always wait.

little lisa said...

Trauty said...

Pehaps maybe a little sample..no? Dude Arbor day pwns every holiday, haven't you heard? 11 hour car trip tomorrow, I am busting out the headphones and putting DU and IHAV on loud.

Alexis Ann said...

So,
are we going to get any spicy new details about the next album, a new song, a lyric, album cover artwork?

ANYTHING. Would be fine with me,

but just knowing that your spending the wonderful days before Christmas writing songs, is touching.

Your great Jadey[:

Tell Davey that Alexis said "Hola."
