AFI are giving fans another peek at upcoming EP The Missing Man (Ex Noctem Nacimur), out on Friday December 7th, with the release of the track “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!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
