The Afghan Whigs announce their first studio album in five years How Do You Burn?, which is set for release on September 9thvia Royal Cream/BMG.
The Afghan Whigs will embark on an extensive tour in support of How Do You Burn? this fall in the United Statesand Europe, kicking off in Minneapolis on September 9that the Fine Line and ending at the newly reopened KOKO in London on November 6th.
How Do You Burn?, their ninth album overall and following on from the brace of widely acclaimed records they’ve made previously since re-grouping in 2012, Do to the Beast(2014) and In Spades(2017). How Do You Burn? picks up the baton laid down by each of those records and runs it to the horizon.Work on it was begun in September 2020 -the COVID pandemic having forced Whigs frontman/songwriter Greg Dulli to abandon plans to tour his highly praisedsolo album, ‘Random Desire’-and continued over the next 14 months. The global pandemic dictated also that the band record largely apart from, and in different locations to, each other: Dulli, his co-producer Christopher Thorn and drummer Patrick Keeler together in California; bassist John Curley, guitarist Jon Skibic and strings man Rick Nelson laying down and engineering their own parts in Cincinnati, New Jersey and New Orleans, respectively. “Once we got the system down, we started flying,” says Dulli.
