AFI's Davey and Jade Do It Again with XTRMST

AFI's duo frontman vocalist Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget have made yet another side project together the other was Blaqk Audio now they have taken that aspect turning it upside down, to create a whole new act called XTRMST. It's a hardcore straight edge group that will be releasing their self-titled debut album via Dim Mak Records, Steve Aoki's label on November 18th.

"Jade and I have been talking about starting a straight edge hardcore band for years," says Havok. "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."

Puget adds, "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. 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."
