The Afghan Whigs - Algiers


Do to the Beast, the first new album from The Afghan Whigs in 16 years, will be released worldwide via Sub Pop Records on April 14th in Europe and April 15th in North America. The album features the lead single "Algiers."

The Afghan Whigs will perform at the annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, CA on Friday April 11th & Friday April 18th. On April 10th the band will headline an official Pre-Coachella show in Pioneertown, CA at Pappy & Harriet's with Brody Dalle as special guest.

The band will also perform a small number of headline shows in April and May in North America in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Brooklyn, Boston and Baltimore. There will be a special fan pre-sale beginning February 18th, with tickets available to the general public later in the week.



The Afghan Whigs are an American rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, originally active from 1986 to 2001, who have since reformed. The group – with core members Greg Dulli (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick McCollum (lead guitar), John Curley (bass), and Steve Earle on drums – rose up around the grunge movement, evolving from a garage punk band in the vein of the Replacements, Dinosaur Jr., and Mudhoney to incorporate more soul influences into their sound and image. After releasing their first album independently in 1988, the band signed to the Seattle-based label Sub Pop, before releasing their major-label debut and fourth album, Gentlemen, in 1993. Pitchfork described them as "one of the few alt-bands to flourish on a major label" in the 1990s.

Dulli frequently claimed in interviews that the Afghan Whigs would never get back together following their dissolution in 2001 but the group announced in 2012 that they would reunite for a series of major concerts.
