The Afghan Whigs Cover The Police's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"

North American Tour Begins August 26th

The Afghan Whigs have turned in a slow burn cover of The Police's Ghost in the Machine classic, "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic." Entertainment Weekly says of the song, "Dulli and company have brought that spooky undercurrent to the front, and infused the Police's composition with the dark and dangerous sensuality they specialize in" (see EW.com August 14th). The track was recorded during the sessions for the band's current Sub Pop album Do to the Beast.

The Afghan Whigs will kick off their North American trek with a performance on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" the morning of Monday August 25th. The tour begins the following evening on August 26th with a two-night stand at Doug Fir in Portland, OR. Joining the band on drums for the North American tour will be Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs, Greenhornes). Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, the August 31st show in Boise, ID has now been cancelled. For the most up to date information and tickets please visit the Tour page.

Earlier this week, Sub Pop also announced The Afghan Whigs' leader Greg Dulli's collaboration with author & longtime friend Danny Bland for I Apologize in Advance for the Awful Things I'm Gonna Do.... Awful Things... is a 120-page, full-color, paperback collection of haiku written by Bland and is the first published collection featuring Dulli's photography, with calligraphy by Exene Cervenka (co-founder of the band X).
