The Afghan Whigs have announced a new album, How Do You Burn?, which is their first in five years and will be out September 9 via Royal Cream / BMG. Greg Dulli and the rest of the band recorded the album remotely during the pandemic, and it features the late Mark Lanegan on two tracks. Dulli notes that it was Mark who named the album.

How Do You Burn? includes "I'll Make You See God," which they released back in February, and they've just shared new single "The Getaway," a gorgeous, string-laden slow-burn. Watch the video, directed by Philip Harder & Patrick Pierson, below.

The band will be previewing tracks from the new album, and playing old favorites, on their spring tour this month, that includes a sold-out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 25. They've also just announced fall dates, which includes another NYC show happening at Brooklyn Steel on September 15. All dates are listed below.
