The AFGHAN WHIGS – ” How Do You Burn? “

Posted: July 14, 2022 in MUSIC

The Afghan Whigs are set to release their first studio album in five years, “How Do You Burn?“, on 9th september. The Afghan Whigs’ ninth album, and first in five years, was made like a lot of recent records — remotely during lockdown. Adding to “How Do You Burn’s” mood, already darkened by the pandemic, elections and protests, is the spectre of the late Mark Lanegan who appears on two songs, and gave the album its title.

How Do You Burn?” the ninth studio album from The Afghan Whigs, finds the band in peak form, making the most vaulting and thrilling music of their lives. the album is virile, ready-for-action, and finds frontman Greg Dulli as swaggering, enigmatic and darkly charismatic as ever, and singing up a storm. the album reaches corners of sound that, twenty-six years after the band’s inception, find them at an apex. referencing Warren Zevon, Prince, and Zeppelin all while plugging in to the soul and r&b influences that have always set them apart, The Afghan Whigs are at a precipice of greatness. says Dulli, “i’m beginning to see there are a million places we can go. i feel virile, ready for action, and i want to keep stalking greatness.”

“The Getaway” taken from the forthcoming album “How Do You Burn?” out 9/9/22.
