Afghan Whigs share first single from new LP, touring this spring including Brooklyn Bowl (dates, streams)

by Bill Pearis

still from “Algiers” video

Afghan Whigs have released the first track from the band’s anticipated comeback album, Do the Beast. “Algiers” is a dusty Spaghetti Western of a track, complete with castanets, tremeloed minor chords and twangy leads. The video carries the theme further and you can watch that below. The album’s out April 18 on Sub Pop.

We knew Afghan Whigs would be playing Coachella but Greg Dulli and the band will be playing other shows this spring, including Brooklyn Bowl on May 15. Tickets go on presale on Wednesday (2/19) at 10 AM (password is “d2tbbrooklyn”), with the general sale beginning Friday (2/21) at 10 AM.
