So, as you may have seen from the post I wrote on the AFI sites, we're entering the studio to record the new album. I'm beyond excited to commit these songs to tape.

Davey and I spent countless hours holed up in basements, hotel rooms, and houses penning these tracks, we even wrote some on the bus on the Blaqk Audio tour. The 4 of us have worked hard on this album and it's finally all coming together.

David Bottrill is great, very laid back and intelligent, very knowledgeable about music. He produced Tool's Lateralus and Aenima, which are two of the best rock records of the past 2 decades. He was also a producer on Origin of Symmetry, which is my favorite Muse album. And from the electronic music side of my brain, he produced a Paul Oakenfold effort.

So let's get in the studio and the next time you see us will be on the stage.

I can't wait to hear some new stuff from you guys!

Swing by Atlanta for a show if you can. =D

Anna said...

Hooray!
I can't wait to hear it!

leongyiting said...

Can't wait!
& do remember a larger part of Asia when touring(:

Emily Ruth said...

YAY!!!! I can't wait!!!!

Mary-Jean said...

I'm extremely excited for this! You guys worked so hard and you have a great producer. I nearly exploded with excitement over this.

Let me have a moment of music dorkness here: I must say I LOVE Tool and Muse. Paul Oakenfold as well. This is making my insides wriggle with joy. (Wow, that's quite the mental image.)

Have fun in the studio! <3

Jade said...

That's so awesome! I'm so glad you have such an amazing producer.

Kayleigh Puget said...

Oh Jade, I am excited. But I bet I won't get a chance to see you, just like last time, in which I had plans to see you twice and both times fell through. You guys are all that's keeping me going at the moment, seriously.

Thanks for everything.

AbsentOfGrace said...

So excited. I can't wait to hear more news. Like an album title, or album artwork! But we're still a ways out. Make it good boys!

Karlye said...

This is so exciting! I'm very confident in you guys that this will be an amazing album, you've spent so much time just writing songs, plus you picked a fantastic producer. I can hardly wait for it. Off to the studio with you!

Just be sure to hit up Las Vegas or Henderson a couple times when you're on tour again. ;)

danLTH said...

Thanks for making my day/week/month !

you guys should do some studio video posts and the such, that'd help up the rabies level in the fanbase.

So the real question is how can my band open up for you when you go on tour?

Alexis Ann said...

Thank you so much for the update Jade! I can't wait to see you all in Atlanta, *hint hint*.
:P


Please record your album quickly so I don't die of an anxiety attack, my dear Jade.


xoxo

My-le and Jasmin. said...

That's awesome! I am definitely going to see you guys soon. <33

Nicola said...

Shana said...

I need to build up my stamina! This is exciting. :)

december everyday said...

When you come to Toronto.... I.Will.Be.There!

So pumped for new AFI, any idea on release dates yet? 8D

xxxkatexxxrock said...

Oh Jade you have no idea how happy this makes me! I look forward to seeing you on a stage so much! Please, come to the Czech republic. Thank you! All of you mean so much to me. !!!SxE!!!

Jas said...

Gabbieeee said...

I'm BEYOND excited to hear this Jade! This made my day yesterday! Make sure to keep us all updated on how things are goin! Ya know, so we all don't keel over from the grueling anticipation. Haha. <3333

Tabytha [df] said...

Yay! I saw a thread about this on the DF boards, but I didn't believe it until I went and looked at the main AFI page. (I replied saying, "Come on, guys, you can't just always believe rumours spread on Facebook - Jade would definitely post something on his blog about it!")

So, anyway, this made my week. Thanks for the update!

chaoskitten said...

*SCREAMS*
yay! i can't wait!!!
oh my god, Jade, i'm SO happy now.
*hugs Jade excitedly*
i'm doing a happy dance in my kitchen chair!!!!
i know i keep asking, but PLEASE make sure you come to Dublin, Ireland on the new tour! *drops to knees and begs*
you guys DO have fans here, its just that cds are so expensive here that most people copy each other's cds.... i don't myself for the record though!

eMMe said...

OMG Jade for real you are so killing me, us, everyone!!!. Come on and just send it to us! give us what we want to hear.

Melodia Sadpain said...

OMG!! YAY!!! ^^ I would so jump around dancing the dance of joy if I wasn't at school right now! (Instead I was just clapping my hands like a little child ^^ hardly repressing shouts of happiness)This is some GRREEEAAT news there! I'm dying to hear your new stuff and to see you guys in concert! (I've never been blessed by your presence yet! ;) )

I can imagine many people were dying much harder than I am, since I've known AFI for only 6 months now...

Haa, now I can say you really just MADE MY DAY! Even my week!! Actually, you made the remaining time til the album is out ;)Thanks!!

Much love!

Angharad said...

YAY!!! You have just made my week! And I'm well aware it is only Monday!
Man I am so excited! Oh I really can't wait! Though everyone I know will probably be cursing it by the end of the week cause I probably wont stop mentioning it or going on about how excited I am about the new tracks and touring. Come to Cardiff if you can, actually saying that, I will probably travel pretty much anywhere to see you guys live!!!

Shinigamiiz said...

:)
You know you just turned my day from horribly depressing to jubilantly amazing. (I use some strange word combinations to express my joy.) If you go on tour, please ask Smith if you can go to North Carolina, maybe Raleigh specifically if it is possible?

Love you. (That means now you know you also have many screaming fangirls on the east coast, too, eh? A scary thought...)

Miranda said...

And I am incredibly excited for it. I have no doubts that it will be unbelievable, as always.

If you can get up into the northeast (preferably New England, and even more preferably Vermont) that would be totally incredible and awesome because I'd really like to be able to make a concert.

Thanks for the update! I'm very much looking forward to the new album. Will you be posting studio blogs or videos? I'm sure everyone would love to be a fly on the wall just to watch the whole process, but I suppose you might notice if the studio was suddenly infested with 10385092 flies. Blogs or vlogs would definitely be easier (and more sanitary).

Dear Jade,
I am in a "band" too, me and my friends, just kinnda the ol garage thing again, but i write the lyrics, i know its to late but it would mean the WORLD to me if you would use them for a song in you next album! Please Jade would you? If you could please email me or reply to me me, (i know you probably have lots of thoughs requests...) I could give you the lyrics and you can see if you like them. Thank you Jade, I hope you look at these.

so does this mean you'll be on tour sometime in 2009??

Anonymous said...

Awesome, tape instead of pro tools? old school.

Hopefully the completed album is mastered properly the loudness war mastering that has appeared on the last 3 AFI albums sucks the dynamic range completely out of the music. It's hard to listen to them on a good stereo.

Nixx said...

Thanks so much for the update, Jade! You'd all pretty much fallen off the map for me for a while, and it's great to know good things are coming.

And you'd better keep us updated, mister! I want photos and blogs and studio videos and sneak peeks! (... you spoiled me last time with secret shows and listening parties and autograph sessions :()

But most of all, have fun and come visit us in Toronto soon <3.

awesome!!!
i'm also very excited about the producer that you guys are going to work with.
apart from AFI, Muse is my favourite band.
and i have to agree, origin of symmetry is mindblowing - when you start the album with 2 interstellar rock masterpieces in "bliss" and "new born", well where can you go wrong :)
can't wait to hear more info.

Excited does not describe my mood.
That word seems bland, and inconsiderate to this situation;
excited sits in the category of apathetic to me.

Euphoria suits this moment right now. Like rolling down the window to talk to a police officer and seeing myself riding on a multi-color unicorn-that kind of Euphoria.

You guys work so hard to give us good shit and put on a great show.
Here's to a great up-coming record, and a great tour.

And maybe oneday, you will pass just plain excitement and become so euphoric that you too, will see yourself riding a motherfucking unicorn, just like NPH. :P

Good luck you guys!

as you wish said...

Insanely excited about this lovely piece of news. :)
