AFI – AFI (The Blood Album)

The thing I like about AFI is that they are AFI. They have been an on again, off again staple in my cassette collection since the mid-1990’s. A lot of that is due to my many moods. You see, AFI is a very organic, internal type of band. AFI are the band you need, when you need them. So I am super happy to present to you AFI’s tenth studio album, affectionately called The Blood Album (Concord) or AFIContinue reading

Matt Skiba and the Sekrets Releasing Kuts In June

Matt Skiba and the Sekrets is releasing their second album entitled KUTS on June 2, 2015 (North America) and June 1, 2015 (Europe) via Superball Music. The album was produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, the Vines) and the album cover was photographed by Jonathan Weiner and posted above.

Skiba’s first album with the Sekrets, 2012’s Babylon, received adulation from both fans and press. Now, Matt Skiba and his Sekrets (Hunter Burgan on bass, Jarrod Alexander drums) ready the release of KUTS. Skiba’s ongoing work in Alkaline Trio has been a well-documented punk rock success story, and the vocalist/guitarist has recently performed several gigs as a temporary member of punk/alt icons Blink-182.

Says Skiba of KUTS:

“The writing style and entire approach to this new one was a stronger desire to do something fairly different from my other band. We used sounds hugely influenced by early David Bowie stuff and took more chances. I knew that the playing of Hunter and Jarrod would bring entirely new elements to the songs that would help shape them in a huge way and influence ideas that I would never have thought of on my own. They did great stuff for the last record but had even more freedom on this one. It really shaped the way this record sounds.”
