A few months ago I put up the instrumental of "Endlessly, She Said". Here's a Blaqk Audio instrumental.

p.s. in case you're new here, the flash player I use has a curious phenomenon. Before something plays, Linkin Park always comes up for some reason, I guess whoever made the player loves "Breaking the Habit".

It's quite amazing Jade. Good freakin work :D

Karlye said...

That was awful nice to listen to, I even heard some stuff that is typically unheard over Davey's vocals. Thanks Jade!

Next time you should put up the instrumental of Bitter for Sweet, or Snuff on Digital, no, The Fear of Being Found, wait, On a Friday.

Maybe you should just put up the whole album next time.

camilla said...

That's amazing, thank you!

that is awesome. you guys should bring out a cd with just instrumentals. that would be great.

Syvenseks said...

awethum. I would love some vocal-only AFI tracks. Then I could shittily remix your songs using a plastic harmonica and Audacity.

Katie said...

Awesome. Thanks for sharing. Sharing is caring. Thanks for caring. XD

Crimson Butterfly said...

to be honeset i think i like it with the vocals but at the same time it sounds better without

Tracee said...

Dearest Jade.
I miss AFI soo much! I can't wait for you guys to start touring again. I hope everything is going great with the new album. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR IT! AHH! I would hope you guys are planing to do some signings again as you did with DU..

Thanks for the BA post. I haven't seen You, Dave, orr Smith=) since the SD HOB BA show.

LOVE YOU DEARRRLY!

It's snowing!!!

tragictrust said...

That version is awesome. Wish I could get a copy of that. Was it released on the single, or any other b-side release?

Iamblackbunny said...

Wow..I like that. My brain is expecting to hear Davey sing though! =)

DaveyXxXJadeXxXAFI said...

dude i love this song!!! haha bestest blaqk audio song!!! haha i totally just sat here and sang the whole thing heheh (total dork) haha love it :P thanks for posting it!!!

Brittany said...

This is so neat! I want to sing over it!

christos said...

There was a torrent that had all the Blaqk Audio instrumentals, but I don't think it works anymore. And Semiotic Love still had Davey's vocals during one of the choruses.

Pasta! said...

Player doesn't have sound :(

Payaso said...

ace =)

Matt said...

Lovin it. Get hunter to show you my girls not grey remix!

Theresa said...

Jade, I love how that sounds..but so weird without Davey's vocals.

Thanks for sharing that with us!

Anonymous said...

I got all the instrumentals a few motnhs ago...

DarkFlame337 said...

Just makes me appreciate even more your ability to arrange original songs and Davey's ability to match vocals to instrumentation!

Anja said...

This is awesome! You should post more of AFI and BA instumentals. :)

Um, Jade? Snow Boys Win? xD Come on, it's almost spring. *__*
And pleeease post some more answers. :)

leongyiting said...

Snow boys win LOL.
Love the instrumental <3

True Ninjas never die said...

haha :D So ,and I make karaoke party :D

jilstr said...

Good Morning Jade,
this made me do a little "chair dancin'" on this rainy Tuesday morning.

Melodia Sadpain said...

YAY!! Thanks! Let's say it's about time ;P

Now the video!! The video!!

<33

justin said...

haha thank you!! i've been using FL and making new wave stuff, while listening to Blaqk Audio,Erasure, and Information Society, and trying to figure out basically the patterns and ways of making a good new wave song, but everytime i get distracted by the vocals.. so now i can probably get this done now haha, thanks jade!

Anonymous said...

not to make you mad or anything, but all I see is breaking the habit by linkin park. maybe its cause i'm on a phone... O o

Sarah said...

Thanks for that Jade. An entire instrumental album would be cool, although it would kind of defeat the purpose of the whole duo-thing you and Davey have.

I think it's safe to say that the thing that's great about BA is - each part that you've both contributed is equally amazing and inspiring. :)

Sarah

leda said...

Wow thank you Jade!

Fruzsi said...

Hey, hey. Just like the other time, Linkin Park has something to say to your instrumental songs...

This_Secret_Ninja said...

Thank you very much!

Und liebe Grüße an die Schwarzen Segel ;)

MT said...

Oh. That. Was. AWESOME.

Candy said...

Lovin' it!

Charlene said...

Thanks so much for sharing the Stiff Kittens instrumental! Its great.
Looking forward to more AFI and/or BA instrumental tracks posted here (fingers crossed!)

PS Snow Boys Win? . . . complete w/ snow?! LOL

Jacks1234 said...

I keep thinking Davey is going to start singing. I am singing along and learning how much I don't really know the words with out Davey saying them...lol...
'Tis cool though, lots of stuff I don't normaly here in that song.

Jill said...

Wow, Jade. That was SOOO awesome! At first I was expecting Davey to sing, and I completely forgot I wasn't listening off of my iTunes, so I checked it to make sure it was working okay. Then I realized I was listening to it off of your blog lol. How about some Semiotic Love or The Love Letter instrumentals? Or how about the whole album? Or how about every single AFI/Blaqk Audio song ever written? Heh... that might be a little much to ask. But hey, that definitely cheered me up after the dentist.

Again, I love the instrumentals, especially if I can sing along, or hear some parts I wouldn't normally hear.

iam said...

I dream about Mute instrumental...

Silly Girls Win said...

yesssss! Thanks, Jadeee.

cilliii said...

Hmmm, the instrumental is quite awesome, and sure I enjoyed every bit of it; but [for me] it's still Davey's voice that makes it whole. :)

Oh, and I didn't notice the change from shy boys win to snow boys win until today. [How long ago did you change that one?- Just curious...]

Loves you ♥

it doesnt work...

Boo Baby Doll said...

That just made me really really happy. ^.^ Thank you jade!! <3

Gillian said...

i like instrumentals. it makes it tons easier to hear some stuff that mighta been missed with Davey singing. but right before the part's where he's about to sing, i get all expectant to hear the vocals, and they're not there, and i'm like "WTF?" aaaand then i remember. and feel really smart.

SweetVampiricAngel said...

Jade it is great. Loved it. Thnak you for it.:*

Steph said...

I think that there should definitely be a CD with just instrumentals on it. Perhaps and AFI/Blaqk Audio split?

Misty said...

Very rad, Jade. Now, where's the rest of the album? Would love to hear it.

XBleedingRoseX[DF]

Snuff Digital said...

That was really awesome!
I think it's always kinda interesting to hear songs with out the vocals.

Thanks for posting that!

I'd love to hear the instrumental of snuff on digital or wake up, open the door, and escape to the sea.

ThisSideUp said...

Wow, that was fantastic! I heard so many things I hadn't noticed before. It was beautiful! That would have been a great single even without the vocals (Davey's lyrics and voice are like the icing on top of a big, chocolaty cheesecake, though. They make it deep and rich. Mmmmmmm...).

Glass Spider Webs said...

I love this.
It makes me want to throw a dance party. As does almost all blaqk audio.

Are you going to do anything more with blaqk audio after the new afi album? *coughGOTOBOSTONcough*

Aaron said...

I never noticed how nicely you did on the pianos in the verses. That's some pro reverb man. I'm still learning to get my pianos to sound like rad like that.

Here's a song I wrote for my ex girlfriend last year that was originally inspired mostly by your stuff with Blaqk Audio

http://www.fileden.com/getfile.php?file_path=http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/9/3/2080397/DLGinstrumental.mp3

It's called Don't Let Go, hopefully ya like.

I'll be flying from Salt Lake City to Toronto to see you guys in June and visit her at the same time! Thanks for giving me a solid reason to see her, and inspiration to keep writing! =)

-Aaron

Bailey! said...

Wow, that definitely gave me a new view of the music, it was fabulous. I'm greedy, but more please?

Anonymous said...

Love it. Sounds great just as an instrumental! I did start singing over it though. Then I called in my dog for backup vocals. We then proceeded to have a dance-off in which I was not the victor(there was some bias among the judges, I assure you). Well thanks for posting! You rock!
-<3 Sarah

Melodia Sadpain said...

Wow, did you plan to post it exactly 1 year later? :D

If so, that's not nice! It's a long time to have people waiting! ;P
If not, well, good timing!

Sorry to post again, I just checked that out. And the song too. And I feel obligated to point out the obvious: you're genius.

WTF, Jade, "Breaking the habit"?!? said...

Are you gonna fix that Linkin Park that shows up on la playa??? It's rather annoying...And yeah, some AFI instrumentals would be great.

namedannette said...

Jade you are pretty much the best being ever. Period.

Gracie said...

that. is. amazing. jade. you. are. amazing. im sorry. youre amazing hands down. :D everyone loves you jade!!!

Anonymous said...

My-le and Jasmin. said...

Awesome song, awesome instrumental <3

Frances said...

What are you talking about?Breaking the Habit? It doesn't come up.

sharna. said...

huh? why does it say snow boys win?
haha

kirstie said...

Hooray! I thought you forgot about that (even though you're the one who asked which one we wanted). I even forgot which one I voted for xD Haha...but it was wonderful, of course. Thanks!

<3

Edvinas said...

Jade, Do you like Linkin Park?

Kayleigh Puget said...

Curious. Phenomenon.

You, sir, are the best man in my life at this present moment.
You make me laugh all the time.

Nice instrumental, Jaaaaade/

*stares*

lezah said...

This calls for a night of horrible discreet solo disco dancing in my room. Thanks Jade! It's sexy. <3

alex said...

the music is great and daveys melodies are amazing but when you fuse them together, thats where the magic happens..

havokisthecure said...

amazing jade!! I loved it!!!!!...and thanks for sharing that with us!...jesus, I am fan of the best BAND in the universe! I am so lucky! hehe...seriously, thank u.

chaoskitten said...

your talent never ceases to amaze me Jade! :)
that was DEADLY!

i've off school sick for the past 2 days, and that's just cheered me up! thanks!

poor Davey must be feeling a bit left out, aww...
why don't you put up just his vocals next? it would cool.

you should put up the intrumental to Mute.

VNV Nation's got nothing on you guys! :)

You can hop a plane to New Hampshire and shovel my snow.
-<3 Sarah

Susan said...

thanks for sharing! definitely sounds different without the vocals.

man, i could have used you last week to shovel my snow. now it is like 70 and my bulbs are popping up. crazy!

Emme said...

LUV! LUV! LUV Stiff Kittens.

That song brought back some super cool memories that just left me breathless **sigh**

Even have me lookN for it on my ipod... sweet deal!

propelwave said...

love it!!! its amazing i must say =)

Lashy said...

Jade, that was awesome. It was cool to hear some new stuff usually lost to Davey. ^_^ We want more!

<3 Lashy

Brandon! (stupidartpunk) said...

Its so simply beautiful it sounds more complexed with the vocals on it im inspired now to shrift through like a bajillon samples

Dark Flame said...

Hello and thanks a lot for the song i love it I just cant wait for a new BA album, can I make a request plz can u put wake up open the door and scape to the see instrumental its my fav song from BA I hope ur doing good take a lot of care xoxo

hiimniko said...

That's great!






I'm still crossing my fingers for a LLW/37mm instrumental, although I'm asking for too much.

Thank you for this!

Payaso said...

does that include yellow snow?

Tess said...

I always listen to your little player things, and I've never heard any Linkin Park. Maybe it's just me, but I press the skip button to start playing and it works fine.

art biter said...

Thanks for synching my brain SBW...that was stellar!

The snow is eternal where I live...you're welcome to bring your shoveling hands around anytime, though I don't pay much...just flattery, blandishments and smiles...and maybe a bowl of matcha. Tea is eternal here as well.

I will be so pleased when AFI's latest & newest is in my hands...

Andy Green said...

I’ve been a fan of Blaqk Audio for years and this instrumental version sounds like a totally different song! It shows how deep your music goes and how to get the final product you layer on many tracks to get the final product. For example I’m listening to "Love Like Winter" as I’m typing this and even now I am finding new things in it that I never heard!(And I’ve been listening to that song since the day it was out). So thank you so much for putting this up it gives me a new perspective of your style of music whether it is AFI or Blaqk Audio. But in general you guys ROCK!

Heh. Top ten things to spread peanut butter and jelly on:
Bread
Pancakes
Bananas
Gum (to remove it, peanut butter alone is fine)
Crackers
Gummies
Apples
Your children
Your dog
Your face

This might help with your facial hair, Jade.

What's up with you and snow. I mean I love it but...snow boys win? Let me shovel your snow? What next? Let me start a snow blizzard in your town?

And when it leaves the last AFI record

angelseternalpain said...

Emme Rawrs said...

Ooh, pretty noises! Davey's too loud sometimes.

BellaDawna said...

I love the intstrumental versions. There are always so many things I hear that I don't notice with the vocals. Although Davey's voice is incredible, you are so extrememly talented. You never cease to amaze me.

BellaDawna said...

I just listened to it again, seriously, breathtaking. I think I am going to have to crush on you for a while:)

weyer said...

Oh, speaking of Blaqk Audio, I had that song True Faith by New Order stuck in my head and I thought, hey, you could do an awesome cover of that song! Also please forgive the multiple posts. I just get too excited about talking to you sometimes.
