The more time that goes by between posts, the harder it becomes to post. I feel like if I haven't written in 2 months, then I better write something earth-shattering, something that will make up for my lack of upkeep.
But lacking any bombshells to drop, let me see if I can recap the last few months.
AFI finished the Green Day tour, the last tour of the Crash Love record cycle, culminating with this:



No one seemed to be surprised that we were dressed as Santas, I think they thought we were just part of the show.
The tour was lovely, Green Day are fantastic wonderful gents.
A little bit of home time, a little bit of this:


















and then switching gears to Blaqk Audio. Right off the bat we had two shows lined up, Spookfest in SF and Underworld in San Diego, so we had to get our electronic chops popping again.
We acquired a new soundguy by the name of Moses, who does sound for Ratatatat, and who sort of looks like the old timey Moses:




















but younger...and no...beard...and with tattoos...and no 5 Commandments.
The first shows were great, especially Spookfest, people just want to dance! 10,000 Kevin Bacons.



I got to see some of MSTRKRFT's set, they devastated the place, and some of DJ Shadow.
As I write this, I'm working on our set for the next BA show, January 6th, at Popscene in San Francisco.
So there you have it, it may have seemed deceptively quiet in my world for the last 3 months but I was stupid busy.
I promise to update more now, and come out and dance with us, we'll be popping up all over.

I thought you'd forgotten you had fans.
It doesn't matter, you are the best.
I would like to hear new songs soon, but with the style of Decemberunderground or Sing the sorrow.

Well now that I know you are alive and not buried in a ditch somewhere, I am relieved. The new Blaqk Audio that has been release is EPIC keep up the good work! And as a [not so] final note I drew a portrait of you and I would really like you to have it, but I don't know how to get it to you.

Well hey there stranger, we missed you! Glad to hear you've been keeping yourself occupied and didn't just drop off the ends of the interweb. Congrats on all you've gotten accomplished, it must feel awesome. I'm definitely looking forward to the new BA album, the songs I've heard thus far are amazing, major props for all your hard work! <3 Can't wait to join in on the dance party when you tour! Make sure you shimmy your way down somewhere around FL so we can boogie! :P

Good to hear from you Jade. I will have to take you up on that offer to come out and dance. People usually get mad at me for dancing at concerts. Sounds like I definitely need to attend a Blaqk Audio concert!

Cassii Mitchell said...

Dear Jade Puget,

We understand that you're very busy and important, but you know, you could type in a short hello once in a blue moon.

Disappointment.

I love the Santa costumes though.

Moses is sooooo cool.


Cough cough come to london cough cough.

Well I'm looking forward to hearing more stuff from Blaqk Audio. I kind of figured you were ridiculously busy. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Jade! I hope that you have a good holiday!

SilentStarlight said...

Jade, your post made my weekend. ^_^ I'm glad you took the time to post even when you're insanely busy and it's the holiday season and everything.
I suppose you guys must really love Santa, since imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Hahaha. Blaqk Audio sounds great; I can't wait to hear more songs from the new album!
Have a wonderful holiday, and relax after writing so many great songs! You and the rest of AFI are such a great inspiration to me, as a fellow musican and songwriter. Thank you for all the wonderful music and the sacrifices you make for your fans.

Saige said...

Yes! You're alive Jade! At the two month mark I was beggining to think Davey went psycho and buried you in a ditch somewhere. Yay! You're posting more! You make me happy! :D I would totally love if Blaqk Audio could come to Montana. It would be amazing. Can't wait till your next post! :)

Anonymous said...

Hi Jade, I just want to thank you for inspiring me to play guitar, and thank you for indirectly cheering me up because when I'm pissed at the world, I just play your music and it makes me forget everything. Thank you.

Bella said...

May I also beg you to play No New Tales To Tell??? :)

Kat said...

I hadn't realized until later that it was AFI in the holiday attire storming the stage. That was an excellent show from both you and Green Day!

Rhea R said...

Ten commandments =)
Just saying. COME TO TORONTO.

Levi said...

it's really nice to see new posts from you! but I'm glad you've been able to take some time to just relaaax.

I saw you guys at green day's tour opener in camden... sadly I wasn't familiar with most of your songs at the time. but I was completely blown away by your set, and it made my night how well davey dealt with the jerks in the pit who were being rude. since then, I've become a HUGE fan of both AFI and BA. so I sincerely apologize for the assholes/lack of enthusiasm in that camden crowd, but know that you gained at least one fan for life from that show :)

if you come to the philadelphia/wilmington area I WILL find a way to get to the show... somehow. and I promise to dance until my legs don't work anymore :)

Emmie said...

Mr. Jade Puget, Would Blaqk Audio Kindly Do A Show In Australia Some Time Soon. I Love BA And AFI And I Have Seen AFI Live A Few Times But Never BA, I have Not Ever Heard Of BA Coming To Australia To perform A BA Show. It Would Mean The World To Me If You BA Could Come To Australia, We Love You Over Here.

Yours Sincerely,

Emmie

Kitsune said...

yay!! Popscene once again <3

Matthew said...

Sadly, I won't be back until about 10pm on the 6th. I'm going to visit family, so my girlfriend and I are going to miss your show. I hope you have a few more in the bay area before you set off on touring.

We're huge fans, and really enjoyed spookfest. I've never been to an event so big before, and we mostly came to see you guys, but we found a lot more. So, thanks for being there.

I hope all is going well for you and your girlfriend, and munch.
And good luck with the blaqk audio album!

Cat said...

Unless the commandments are on his snazzy iPhone right there. That's where I would keep them anyway.

Bella said...

I'm so excited for Thursday's show that I did these yesterday....
