AFI have shared their new song “Caught” via Rise Records.

Previously unreleased, “Caught” was recorded while the band was making their newest album, Bodies. AFI first shared the song with fans at the premiere of “Where We Used To Meet”, the brand new short film by Kes Glozier. The film features music from Bodies and storylines inspired by the song lyrics. Two intimate screenings were held at Brain Dead Studios in Los Angeles, CA on September 28, followed by a global Livestream event on September 30.

“We were really happy with ‘Caught’ and planned for it to be on the Bodies album,” vocalist Davey Havok explains. “We ended up cutting it at the last minute to allow for a better album flow, but still really loved the song. When we started collaborating with Kes on ‘Where We Used To Meet,’ we thought it would be a great context to present the song in.”

“I really like ‘Caught’ and I fought for it,” drummer Adam Carson adds. “Even though I didn’t play on it at all, I felt that it was a really good song and would be important on the record. I was crushed when it didn’t make the cut, so I’m happy we are releasing it now.”

The new track will be available on a limited 7” with information available here.

Next up, AFI will embark on a 2022 U.S. headline run beginning February 11 in San Diego. Featuring special guests Cold Cave, the tour will hit venues from coast to coast, including Terminal 5 in New York City on March 3, and concludes at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on March 25 and March 26.

Artwork for ‘Bodies’ by AFI

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.
