HOW DO YOU BURN? AVAILABLE NOW!

how do you burn?

The Afghan Whigs have announced their first studio album in five years How Do You Burn?, which is set for release on September 9th via Royal Cream/BMG. How Do You Burn?, their ninth album overall and following on from the brace of widely-acclaimed records they’ve made previously since re-grouping in 2012, ‘Do to the Beast’ (2014) and ‘In Spades’ (2017). ‘How Do You Burn?’ picks up the baton laid down by each of those records and runs it to the horizon.

TRACK LIST:
I’ll Make You See God
The Getaway
Catch A Colt
Jyja
Please, Baby, Please
A Line Of Shots
Domino and Jimmy
Take Me There
Concealer
In Flames

For his supporting cast, Dulli called upon several serial collaborators including the late Mark Lanegan, who was a regular in Dulli’s Twilight Singers, a partner in The Gutter Twins and a close friend.  Lanegan makes his Afghan Whigs debut singing backup vocals on two tracks.  “It was Mark who named the album,” Dulli remarked.

Susan Marshall, who sang on the Whigs album 1965, returns to the fray for “Catch A Colt,”one of the album’s standout tracks, loose-limbed like ‘Some Girls’-era Rolling Stones and with the liquid polyrhythms of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Tusk’.

The multi-talented Van Hunt, who toured with the Whigs in 2012 and guested on ‘Do to the Beast’, brings his stacked-up, wall-of-sound vocals to both the plunging, voodoo-blues of ‘Jyja’ and the audacious ‘Take Me There’, transforming the latter, says Dulli, “into this feral gospel song. We sing really well together, but what Van does production-wise… it’s unrelenting.”

Then there’s Marcy Mays, lead vocalist on ‘My Curse’, the torch-song highlight of 1993’s seminal ‘Gentlemen’ album, reprising her role here on the celestial ‘Domino and Jimmy’, playing Stevie Nicks to Dulli’s Lindsey Buckingham. “I wrote that song with Marcy in mind,” says Dulli. “No-one sounds like her; she’s got an incredibly unique, emotional and evocative voice.”

The Afghan Whigs – Dulli, Curley, Nelson, Keeler and with Christopher Thorn now joining the band on guitar – will take ‘How Do You Burn?’ out on the road this year.  Beyond that, says Dulli, their future is gloriously wide open.

Today, The Afghan Whigs release an electrifying new single “I’ll Make You See God,” their first new music since 2017’s album In Spades. The propulsive, driving rock track is also featured in the upcoming PlayStation game Gran Turismo 7 (out March 4th) and the single is being released via Royal Cream/BMG. Listen to the track here: https://theafghanwhigs.lnk.to/IMYSGPR.

The Afghan Whigs – comprising frontman/guitarist Greg Dulli, bassist John Curley, multi-instrumentalist Rick Nelson, drummer Patrick Keeler and new guitarist  Christopher Thorn (Blind Melon) – are also announcing a brief run of U.S. tour dates beginning May 11th in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  The band will be hitting intimate venues across the east coast, midwest and southeast including Nashville’s The Basement East, Atlanta’s Terminal West and culminating in a performance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on May 25th. Tickets for all shows will go on sale 2/25/22.

“I’ll Make You See God” is a combustible head-banger, showcasing Greg Dulli’s powerhouse vocals, still soaring after thirty years since the band’s inception in 1986. “That’s one of the hardest rock songs we’ve ever done,” remarked Greg Dulli.  “It was written and performed on sheer adrenalin.”

From their inception in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1986, The Afghan Whigs have never played by the rules of convention. Against the plaid-and-grunge-shaded backdrop of the early-to-mid-‘90s, the Whigs stood apart from their contemporaries by virtue of attiring in suits and being way more likely to slide on up into a Marvin Gaye groove than rehash a Black Sabbath riff.

They stand apart still. Twenty-six years down the line, bands simply aren’t supposed to be making the most vaulting and thrilling music of their lives. Returning from an 11-year hiatus in 2012, the Whigs have brightened their canon with two more widely-acclaimed records digging yet deeper into the rich seam of their influences, ‘Do to the Beast’ (2014) and ‘In Spades’ (2017).
