A defining - yet oft under-rated - part of the American musical landscape during the 90s, The Afghan Whigs initially split in 2001.
Surprising fans by confirming their reformation during the dying weeks of 2013, the band immediately began work on new material.
The Afghan Whigs are set to release 'Do To The Beast' - their first new album in sixteen years - on April 25th, with the first hints now emerging online.
Stripped from the upcoming album, 'Algiers' finds The Afghan Whigs picking up almost exactly from where they left off: strident, urgent songwriting, Greg Dulli's voice still retains that emotional kick.

'Do To The Beast' will be released on April 15th.
