Blaqk Audio — aka Davey Havok and Jade Puget from AFI — are set to drop their sophomore album, BRIGHT BLACK HEAVEN, on September 11, and with so much buzz surrounding the album, we had a feeling fans may have had a question or two for the pair. That's why we teamed up with them to host an exclusive PV Fan Q&A. We asked you to send us your most pressing questions, then brought the duo into our studio to capture their answers. Watch them discuss their earliest musical influences, the passion for electronica that has inspired their new album and continues to inspire their work, and their views on drawing innovation from various mediums of art. You'll hear about the Boy George Snoopy doll Davey kept throughout childhood and his penchant for artists that share the name David, and you'll learn more about Jade's love for electro and how he views its construction as more of a "clinical" process.
Check it out, leave a comment if your question was featured, and catch the second half of the interview next week.
You can also listen to the full-album stream of Bright Black Heaven via our friends at Buzznet and pre-order your copy before it drops.
