Do the Beast

As reported by indie rock blogger Bob Odenkirk on Friday, Afghan Whigs are fully back in action with a new album, their first in 16 years, to be released "soon." Pitchfork lets us know that album is called Do to the Beast and will be released via their old old home of Sub Pop and "soon" is specifically April 15. No music from it has been released yet, but that's the cover art above.

John Curley and Greg Dulli are Afghan Whigs. Just saying. Rick was great, but easily replaceable.

I'll take Fat Greg Dulli over skinny Grimes any day.

Just because Rick isn't pictured in the studio doesn't mean he's not on the record. He lives in Minnesota and May have recorded his parts later or in another studio.

That cover art reflects precisely what happened to my head this morning as I received this news.

Title would be so much better if it was 'Do The Beast.'
Maybe set off a dance craze.
