Early Life and Education

Davey Havok was born as David Passaro on November 20, 1975 in Rochester, New York. After his father passed away in the early 1980s, Passaro moved with his mother to Sacramento, California, where she remarried. He ended up adopting the surname of his stepfather, Marchand. After going to Catholic school through the eighth grade, he moved with his family to Ukiah, California, where he graduated from Ukiah High School in 1993. He subsequently went to the University of California, Berkeley, which he left after his sophomore year to focus on his music career.


The rock band AFI was first started by Havok and his high school friends Vic Chalker and Mark Stopholese in late 1991. Because the boys didn't play any instruments, they invited Adam Carson to be their drummer. After high school, the band broke up when its members went off to college. AFI decided to reunite in the mid-90s, and on the Fourth of July in 1995 released its debut album, "Answer That and Stay Fashionable." The band followed that with 1996's "Very Proud of Ya" and 1997's "Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes." Following the release of "A Fire Inside EP" in 1998, AFI released its fourth studio album, ""Black Sails in the Sunset," in 1999. That album was the first to include the longstanding lineup of Havok, Carson, Jade Puget, and Hunter Burgan. Later in 1999, AFI released "All Hallow's E.P." The band went on to commence the new millennium with the release of "The Art of Drowning."

AFI had its greatest commercial success yet in 2003 with "Sing the Sorrow," which made it to number five on the Billboard 200 and was eventually certified Platinum. The album was supported by the singles "Girl's Not Grey," "The Leaving Song Pt. II," and "Silver and Cold." AFI had an even bigger hit with its next album, 2006's "Decemberunderground," which reached number one on the Billboard 200 and was also certified Platinum. The band's subsequent studio albums were "Crash Love," released in 2009, and "Burials," released in 2013. AFI released its self-titled tenth studio album in early 2017. Since then, the band has toured.

Son of Sam

In 2000, Havok joined three members of the band Samhain and recorded an album with them as the horror punk supergroup Son of Sam. That album, "Songs from the Earth," came out in 2001.

Blaqk Audio

Along with his AFI bandmate Jade Puget, Havok began writing music in 2001 for an electronic music side project called Blaqk Audio. Abandoning the project for a while to focus on AFI, they late resumed Blaqk Audio in 2006. Finally, in the summer of 2007, they released their debut album as Blaqk Audio, "CexCells." The album made it to number 18 on the Billboard 200. Five years later, the duo released their second album, "Bright Black Heaven." That was followed in 2016 by "Material." All three of those albums debuted atop the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. Blaqk Audio went on to release the albums "Only Things We Love," "Beneath the Black Palms," and "Trop d'amour."
