I have Twitter now.
I'm not exactly sure what the point of it is, unless the point is to just post 1-sentence descriptions of what you're doing all day.
In that case I understand perfectly.
Anyway, it's ShyBoysWin.

I meant to post a happy b-day to DXH day before yesterday, but better late than never. Strangely enough, our producer has the same b-day as well, and they're both named David. Coincidence? I don't think so.

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.

My friend Mark got arrested at the Prop. 8 demonstrations here in Hollywood.

Today is my 10 year anniversary of joining AFI.
I put together a little slideshow with some pictures I had of me AFI-ing over the years, and some that people have sent me in the past.
Enjoy, and here's to another 10 years.
