AFI is giving fans another peek at upcoming EP The Missing Man (Ex Noctem Nacimur) with the release of “Trash Bat”.
About the song, AFI guitarist Jade Puget (who also produced and mixed the EP) says, “This was the ideal song to kick off the EP. From Adam’s big drum fill at the top all the way through to the end, it’s just a quick burst of frenetic energy. I brought the song in and was playing it for Davey and he threw out the line, ‘my Trash Bat’ and I thought, how can you lose with a title like that? What is a Trash Bat anyway? Who cares!”
The Missing Man follows last year’s AFI (The Blood Album), which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative and Hard Rock Albums Charts and No. 5 on The Billboard 200.
It was the band’s second consecutive Top 10 Billboard debut following 2013’s Burials.
