AFI fans will be glad to know that front-man Davey Havok will be debuting his novel, POP KIDS on April, 4 through Black Candy Publishing. In this book, Havok opens the Kimono and gives readers a glimpse of the frenetic lives of today’s pop-culture obsessed youth. This novel is supposed to be a compelling portrait of high school angst, nihilistic behavior and longed-for redemption.
POP KIDS is expected to shock some readers with its unflinching portrayal of a generation weaned on modern media and the cult of celebrity. Teens are obsessed with social networking, reality TV, Internet porn, fashion, film, music, sex, and drugs. According to Havok, this is a world that really exists. He captures all of this with his trademark use of wordplay and his eye for detail.
