The Cincinnati alt-band Afghan Whigs will release a brand spanking new record named ‘Do To The Beast’ on 14th April on the rad-as-anything Sub Pop Records, the once home of Nirvana and Mudhoney.
Afghan Whigs released 6 albums; the first ‘Big Top Halloween’ was released in 1988 and was followed by ‘Up In It’ (1990), Congregation (1992), Gentlemen (1993), Black Love (1996) and finally 1965 (1998). They have been cited as influencing popular modern American acts such as beardy, besuited indie rockers The National and Springsteen-approved punk band The Gaslight Anthem so… they’re kind of a big deal okay?!
If you’re lucky enough to be heading to California for Coachella later this year then I’m extremely jealous… because you can watch Afghan Whigs rock it like it’s ’92 on April 11th and 18th.
