About The Afghan Whigs
The Afghan Whigs were a thing. Or more correctly, a rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio active from about 1986 to 2001. And thanks to frontman Greg Dulli, they are a thing once more, active and vibrant and about to release a brand new album.
It's been three years, actually, since the band got back together. But it was January 27, 2014 before the The Afghan Whigs officially announced their first record since 1998's "1965." The upcoming project, titled "Do To the Beast," will bow on April 15th. The date will fall between the band's performances at Coachella on consecutive Fridays, April 11th and 18th.
The album comes two years after Dulli and the rest of the Afghan Wigs launched their reunion tour with a New York City date in 2012. About the same time, they recorded a cover of Frank Ocean's "Lovecrimes," and later performed at SXSW in 2013. In fact, the group headlined The Fader Fort event along with surprise guest Usher.
It should be no surprise that the core of The Afghan Whigs – Dulli, Rick McCollum (lead guitar), John Curley (bass) – remains intact. After forming in Ohio so long ago, these guys have six studio albums to their name. Their debut album, "Big Top Halloween," was released back in 1988. It was followed by "Gentleman" in 1993, "Black Love" in 1996 and finally "1965" in 1998. Most notably, they were described by Pitchfork as "one of the few alt-bands to flourish on a major label." The time has come to see if the Afghan Whigs can flourish again.
