The Afghan Whigs’ “Matamoros” Music Video + Tour

You can now watch The Afghan Whigs’ latest video for “Matamoros,” the second single from the band’s critically acclaimed album Do to the Beast. The clip, directed by Phil Harder (“Algiers”), was filmed on location in New York City. The FADER says of the video, “A bunch of commuters were treated to front row seats of a performance by NYC dance crew W.A.F.F.L.E in the new video for reunited rockers The Afghan Whigs. Flipping moves to the math-rocky “Matamoros”…the crew turn the subway into their stage and underscore just how dance-y a song it is (see July 14th premiere).  

The Afghan Whigs are currently concluding a European tour with their UK dates beginning tomorrow night in London with a sold out show at the Electric Ballroom.
 
The band will embark on a massive North American trek beginning on August 26th in Portland, OR at Doug Fir.  The tour concludes on Halloween night in Austin, TX at the Mohawk. Singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur will be direct support for most of the tour.
 
The Afghan Whigs will kick off their US tour by performing live on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” on August 25th.
