The Afghan Whigs Announce North American Tour

Special Guest Har Mar Superstar To
Support On All Dates

Sub Pop to release The Afghan Whigs' In Spades, their spellbinding new album, worldwide this Friday May 5th

The Afghan Whigs In Spades, the group's spellbinding new album, will be available this Friday (May 5th) on CD / 180 gram-LP / CS / DL worldwide from Sub Pop. Led by the singles "Demon In Profile," "Oriole," and "Arabian Heights" along with standouts "Copernicus," and "Toy Automatic," it is the follow-up to the band's internationally acclaimed Do to the Beast. In Spades was recorded in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Memphis and Joshua Tree and written and produced by Greg Dulli.

This morning the band has announced a new 28-city tour of North America for this fall which will begin on September 6th in Orlando, FL. Har Mar Superstar will support on all shows. Tickets for all shows will go on sale this Friday morning. The tour will include three Canadian shows (Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver) and the band will be playing several markets they haven't visited in years (Richmond, Birmingham, Kansas City, Houston).

The Afghan Whigs will also visit 17 countries overseas this summer in support of the new album including performances at Primavera Sound, Northside Festival and Way Out West. Ed Harcourt will be supporting on all European headline shows.

The early reviews of In Spades have been stellar:

"Demonic pain experienced in the midnight hours suits both him (Dulli) and his band. No wonder then that this matches some of their best work." [4/5 stars] - Q Magazine

'A thrilling impassioned addition to their catalogue.' [8/10] - UNCUT

"Back to their dark, soulful best." [4/5 stars] - MOJO

"Forever raising goosebumps where you didn't even know you had them." - [5/5 stars] - Record Collector

The Afghan Whigs have released two videos from the album so far: "Demon In Profile," directed by longtime collaborator Phil Harder [Watch] and "Oriole" helmed by erotic art director Amy Nicole Hood [Watch].

The first show in support of In Spades will take place later this month at a sold out Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York on May 23rd.

A fan pre-sale for all headline shows will begin on Wednesday May 3rd. Password: InSpades.
