Afghan Whigs back in studio after 16 years
The Afghan Whigs have returned to the studio after a 16-year absence, and they’ll release an album, titled Do To The Beast, this year.
Mainman Greg Dulli got the band back together in 2012 following their split in 2001 having released five full-length records.
They regrouped briefly to record two tracks for the 2006 compilation album Unbreakable. In the meantime Dulli had been busy with the Twilight Singers and Gutter Twins, the latter his duo with Mark Lanegan.
A brief Whigs statement says: “Rejoice! For April 15th carries with it the release of Do To The Beast, the first new record from The Afghan Whigs in 16 years! Stay tuned for more details.”
What will be their sixth album will be released via Sub Pop, the label that released the band’s 1990′s breakthrough Up In It.
The Afghan Whigs are due to appear at both weekends of this year’s Coachella festival in California in April.
