On Tuesday AFI's Davey Havok and Jade Puget Launch Straight Edge Band XTRMST was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) AFI's Davey Havok and Jade Puget have confirmed rumors that the hardcore band XRTMST is indeed their creation. Tapes of the band were recently given away for free at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles, reports Alt Press.
The four-song cassette featured no text, only an "XT" logo, with a small piece of paper on the sales counter that read, "Do you like hardcore? Fan of Straight Edge? If so - Take this tape for free!"
Puget took to twitter to give fans the confirmation they wanted. He tweeted, "Now that the cat is out of the bag, XTRMST is indeed Davey and I. More to come."
One listen will certify that this is definitely not AFI. It's something much more aggressive. While no live dates have been announced for XTRMST, AFI will head out with Linkin Park and Thirty Seconds to Mars on the Carnivores Tour. Have a listen to XTRMST's self-titled EP - here.
