Afghan Whigs share “Arabian Heights” from new LP ‘In Spades’


Afghan Whigs have shared “Arabian Heights” from their forthcoming album In Spades. Powered by a driving rhythm section, the song slowly works its way from a simmer to a rolling boil with a typically impassioned delivery from frontman Greg Dulli — listen below.

In Spades is out May 5 via Sub Pop and the band will be in NYC shortly after that to play a sold-out release show at Harlem’s iconic Apollo Theatre. It’s currently their only North American date, but they’ll head to Europe right after the Apollo show. All dates are listed below.
