AFI New Hardcore Side Project
2014-03-17 by GreyShadow | 92 Comments

A new Straight Edge hardcore project has emerged and the rumors led people to believe it was being fronted by none other than AFI's lead singer, Davey Havok. Guitarist of AFI, Jade Puget has just confirmed that Davey as well as himself are in the band.
The project is called XTRMST and you can check out their first EP here:

I really enjoy this. Similar to what Fall Out Boy tried to do for that short album, but done right.

Vocals don't really sound like Davey. Wouldn't be surprised if this had nothing to do with AFI at all.

Nevermind. Beginning of Conformist makes it obvious it's him.

Is this an official EP? They sound like rough demoes that would later be cleaned up for an album. They definitely need a full band. That bass tone is...not great.

Yea nothing says straight edge like abstaining from animal byproducts, being a part of a local acronymed moshing squad, calf tats, and manly capris to expose said tats.
