Get Dark
by AFI

Album: The Missing Man (2018)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This striding, brooding track is built on the sparseness and simplicity of its drum groove and guitar riff. Guitarist Jade Puget, who produced "Get Dark" used most of the vocal takes from the very first time that Davey Havok sang the song, as well as using some of his guitar parts from when AFI were writing it.
  • Davey Havok said in a press release: "From the initial performance and recording, it had a driving sense of forward movement and penetrating connection. The song's themes of deification and deference, self-loathing and vanity, captivation and release, damage and healing, are posed in a subtle invitation to those inherently compelled to accept."
