Despite the fact that AFI singer Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget had been working on songs for their electronic side project Blaqk Audio since before AFI's breakthrough album, Sing the Sorrow, came out in 2003, it took a few years for the music to see the light of day.
The success of their group's major-label debut prevented the two from spending much time on it, though Puget still continued to bring programmed sounds into AFI's repertoire, both on Sing the Sorrow and 2006's Decemberunderground. Finally, in early 2007, Havoc (on vocals) and Puget (on everything else) were able to complete what they began, releasing the all-electronic dance and goth-inspired CexCells on Interscope in August of that same year. In 2012, Blaqk Audio returned with the '80s synth pop inflected Bright Black Heaven. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi
