The Orange County Register has posted an interview with Blaqk Audio in which Davey and Jade compare BA and AFI shows, and discuss changes in the EDM scene.
“The small venues have never really become unfamiliar to me,” he insists. “Blaqk Audio shows are more of a party than a rock show.”
The duo agrees it’s gratifying to see so much overlap among fans of both groups. “What we’re doing is so musically divergent from what AFI does, so to see some of those fans able to appreciate what we do is very satisfying,” Havok says.
“It’s nice to see that sort of open-mindedness, which is not unexpected at all. AFI fans have been nothing if not open to new music and experiences. I think within the context of both groups, we tend to stray from a particular, distinguishable format or identity, so really in either case, to enjoy the band takes a willingness to step out of musical confines. With Blaqk Audio, we really don’t fit directly into any sort of house music or current definition of electro, either.”
