Where did you find time to do Blaqk Audio with all of these projects? It’s interesting you and Jade have three different projects together.Jade is always writing, so we were simultaneously writing the Blaqk Audio record and once the XTRMST record got finished and the tour was finished. What does it afford you creatively to be able to do all three of these?It’s real exciting for us to have these outlets because Jade and I come from very similar musical backgrounds, albeit very broad musical backgrounds.We would write Blaqk Audio and we would write AFI at separate times and slowly the lines started to blur.In the case of XTRMST that was not really as accidental as that because Jade and I had been talking for some time about doing a straightedge hardcore band, which had the purpose of directly furthering the straightedge agenda.Now to distinguish between all the projects and what they afford me creatively one might just listen to the music to see how different it is.Despite Bottrill’s impeccable CV, he was off the project after just a couple of months, to be replaced by Joe Mc Grath, who had been promoted from his previous position as engineer on AFI’s was a really unique experience for us," recalls Burgan."It took a long time to demo the songs that make up that record.
The album was supported by singles "Girl's Not Grey" and "The Leaving Song, Pt.II", both featured in the top 20 of America's Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart in 2003.It went onto receive Platinum certification with over one million units sold in the US.AFI has released seven studio albums over 18 years as a band, the first being Answer That and Stay Fashionable in 1995.The band then went on to release Very Proud of Ya the next year, followed up by a third in three years, Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes.
