Blaqk Audio is an American electronic music duo formed by current AFI members Davey Havok and Jade Puget under Interscope Records. Their debut album CexCells was released on August 14, 2007 and reached number eighteen on the Billboard 200.
The band’s second album Bright Black Heaven was released on September 11, 2012 under Superball Music’s imprint Big Death. The first single from Bright Black Heaven, “Faith Healer”, was released August 14, 2012.
Havok and Puget started writing music for Blaqk Audio around the year 2001, but they were too busy with AFI to devote enough time to the electronic side project. They returned to the project only in year 2006, and the debut album CexCells was put out in August 2007.
AFI have increasingly included synthesized elements into their recent albums; 2003 release Sing the Sorrow and 2006 release Decemberunderground credit Puget with ‘programming and keyboards’. These synthesized elements are particularly apparent on songs such as “Death of Seasons” and “37mm”. In the August 2006 edition of Guitar World, Puget states that AFI songs “37mm” and “Love Like Winter” were both originally intended as part of the Blaqk Audio side project. Elements of programming, however, can be found as early as 2000s The Art of Drowning, which featured a drum machine on “The Despair Factor”.
