The Afghan WhigsThe Afghan Whigs have returned with their first new album in sixteen years, titled ‘Do to The Beast’ under one of our favorites, the Subpop label.

Do to the Beast was created in L.A., New Orleans, Cincinnati, and Joshua Tree – a virtual map of the band’s past and present homes. “The album was named in Cincinnati, which is especially fitting,” singer Greg Dulli notes. “I was recording a beatbox track for the song ‘Matamoros,’ and my friend Manuel Agnelli (of Italian rock band Afterhours) was in the control room. After I finished, he said it sounded like I was singing ‘Do to the beast what you do to the bush.’ And I thought, ‘Brother, you just named the record.'”

The group is currently gearing up to start a European tour at the end of June and just added a few extra dates to their forthcoming US tour, coming this Fall.
