Blaqk Audio — the electronic duo featuring AFI icons Davey Havok and Jade Puget — have announced their new album Beneath The Black Palms. The album is being released via BlaqkNoise in two parts. Beneath The Black Palms — Side A arrives today, July 28, and features five songs.
Surrounded in ’80s neon wave visuals and fast synth seductions, Blaqk Audio is exploring a sound different than their regularly programmed deep melodies. “‘Hiss’ is a lovely slice of noisy darkness,” says Puget. “Listen closely and you can hear the susurration of the palms.” Purchase and stream Beneath the Black Palms here.
“Beneath the Black Palms is an affirmation, exaltation, and momentary illumination of rich, arcane shadows fortified by blinding and rapturous light,” Havok says. “Musically a bird sister of Only Things We Love, our latest record more deeply traverses our EBM and futrurepop roots while also extending into moods unheard from us before. I am deeply excited to have the opportunity to share it with all.”
Beneath The Black Palms is the follow up to 2019’s ONLY THINGS WE LOVE. Blaqk Audio previously released my personal favorite Cexcells (2007), Brig
