Yesterday, Oct. 25, we reported that the group had posted a new photo, sans frontman’s Davey Havok’s actual body, to their social media. The picture showed a cutout of Havok’s silhouette, but no further context was given.

Of course, the cryptic post sent fans into a panic. Thankfully, they didn’t leave us in suspense very long, and today, they’ve shared their first single since 2017’s AFI (The Blood Album), titled “Get Dark.”

According to AFI’s website, “Get Dark,” is the first single coming from their upcoming EP, the Missing Man, which is set to be released on Dec. 7.

You can preorder your copy of the album here!

Listen to the new song below!

The Missing Man EP Tracklist:

02. Break Angels
03. Back Into The Sun

The band’s new EP will mark fan’s first taste of new music since the group’s last LP, their 2017 self-titled effort, also known as The Blood Album.
