Tour Update: Blaqk Audio

Blaqk Audio, the side project of AFI members Davey Havok and Jade Puget, is about to embark on a spring tour in support of their upcoming new album Only Things We Love, due out March 15. According to Havok, the latest record has a darker quality then previous work with a focus on more modern electronic as well as a techno eighties flare. With such exciting new endeavors in the wings for Blaqk Audio, we were curious to see how they put together a tour and a setlist.
Check out the exclusive interview below and learn how Blaqk Audio's Davey Havok perfectly incorporates fan-favorite tracks with their newer and more experimental songs!
Blaqk Audio Plots Spring Tour In Support of 'Only Things We Love'
Incorporating fan-favorites into the setlist:
"We really enjoy playing our older tracks and we know that people like to hear songs that they’re more familiar with and have been familiar with for some time. At this point, like 15 years, 16 years I suppose?"
What goes into a tour setlist:
"We’ve been working on the setlist for the Only Things Tour for a while now and we’re very diligently trying to have more tracks ready than we put in the set in order to be able to rotate the setlist which is a more difficult orchestration with electronic music with the programming that needs to take place to get the songs to seamlessly flow together, as well as the lighting.
We’re hoping to weave tracks from all four of our albums throughout the set and change the set every night. There are songs off of prior albums like 'Black at the Center' and 'Ill Lit Ships' that we’ve never played before and we’ve been wanting to do that."
