News for The Afghan Whigs

Listen to The Afghan Whigs’ New Song “The Lottery”. Now.

Do to the Beast, The Afghan Whigs first full length record in over a decade and a half, is covered from track to track and from sleeve to spine with eager anticipation. The unveiling of the first single, ”Algiers”, made it instantly clear that the new record from Greg Dulli & Co. has earned all of that eager anticipation, hoopla, fanfare, etc. “The Lottery”, a second peek into DttB, just reinforces how welcome The Afghan Whigs’ return truly is. Listen to that track in the embedded player.

Pre-order Do to the Beast from Sub Pop now, and get instant access to an entire stream of the record! If you pre-order the record on vinyl, you’ll receive the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of the record–this is a classic “while supplies last” situation, so order now before all you have is a (perfectly fine) black copy of the record and a head full of regret.

New Album + Video From The Afghan Whigs!

A few weeks ago, we got to pleasure ourselves by announcing that The Afghan Whigs would be back in business after a 16+ year hiatus (yes, we were that excited) which was received by applause from you. Well, today, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone shared news of a new record, Do To The Beast, a brand new video for the new album track “Algiers”, and some words that they had with the man himself, Greg Dulli. Watch, read, and join the excitement party about the return of one of the keystone bands in the story of Sub Pop.

Pre-order Do To The Beast here, and receive your vinyl order on the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of the record, in this case, on white. Oh, and watch the video in the embed!

The Afghan Whigs Are Back on Sub Pop’s Roster!

Afghan blog

The truly awesome fact that the Afghan Whigs are releasing their first record in 16 years is exciting enough for us to lose our proverbial shit over; the fact that we, Sub Pop Records, have the honor of putting it out is enough for us to lose our literal shit over. (Gross? Sure. True? Maybe.) With that said, mark your calendars for April 15th, 2014 as the day that The Afghan Whigs make a very welcome return into all of our lives with Do to the Beast, their first record in 16 years! More details will be on the way very soon, so check back in. Until then, rejoice, the prodigal sons have returned.
