XTRMST Releases Video For ‘Conformist’

Straight edge hardcore band XTRMST, featuring AFI lead vocalist Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget, have released the first music video for “Conformist”. Watch it here.

The song is off their self-titled debut album, out November 17th via Steve Aoki’s (DJ/producer and former This Machine Kills member) Dim Mak Records. Puget produced and mixed the record at his home studio and at The Treehouse in Los Angeles, CA.


Havok commented on the band:

“Jade and I have been talking about starting a straight edge hardcore band for years. We started writing and recording in early 2012 and chose the name XTRMST because it expresses the messages represented on the record. The straight edge movement is not one of moderation. It’s based in undeniable objective truths.”

“The straight edge philosophy is something that Davey and I gravitated towards at a young age, drawn by concepts and ideals that seem almost foreign in modern society,” says Puget. “Like much of the other subcultures we were a part of growing up, it put us at odds with 99% of the people around us, which was something we embraced. Being sXe for over 20 years and being musicians, it seemed natural that this crucial ideology would find a musical expression.”
