  • A Fire Inside Out - Dissecting XTRMST

    4

    My quest alongside Jeff Cork to discuss all things relating to the band AFI have led us to this recent side-project from two members of AFI called XTRMST. As a straight-edge, hardcore experiment, XTRMST might give some AFI fans hope of listening to a screaming Davey Havok once again. More

    Ben Hanson and Jeff Cork break down Davey Havok and Jade Puget's straight-edge, hardcore side-project called XTRMST.

  • A Fire Inside Out - Talking To AFI HQ's Superfans

    1

    While Jeff Cork and I were recording our analysis of each and every AFI album released, my main stop for research was the AFI News Headquarters. It's a great fan site that chronicles all things AFI, with news stories, links to all of their interviews, and a ton more. For this week's episode, we wanted to pick some of the minds behind the site and talk about the evolution of AFI's community. From the days of the Despair Faction to the blog sites of today, AFI fans are a diverse bunch so there was much to discuss with Mary and Dan. More

    We've come to the end of the road. Jeff Cork and I have discussed each and every AFI album. The good news is that the show must go on, just because we ran out of mainline AFI albums doesn't mean that we don't have more topics to blather on about endlessly. This week we're covering 2013's Burials, the latest and darkest album from AFI's career. How does it compare to our surprise affection for 2009's Crash Love? More
