New Afghan Whigs Song Receiving Internet Love



While we’re admittedly surprised to see 90s critic’s darlings, and “alternative rock” cult-faves, The Afghan Whigs, trending on Facebook for the release of their first new song in over seven years, we’re not unpleasantly so.

First forming in Cincinnati, and existing originally from 1986 to 2001, reuniting briefly to record two tracks in 2006, and then again in 2012 for what was only supposed to originally be a handful of shows, it seems that — with the upcoming release of Do to the Beast, their first new album in 16 years, and presumably a tour to follow — this incarnation of The Whigs will be around for a little while. Judging by the internet buzz being generated by the new video, Algiers (embedded above), it seems that this state of affairs will please many.

You can read an Entertainment Weekly interview with Whigs vocalist, and main songwriter, Greg Dulli (PeekYou profile here), about the reunion and video here.

A visit to Mr. Dulli’s PeekYou profile will allow you to explore his deep and broad digital presence; strewn across the Web in the form of numerous websites, social pages, videos, articles, interviews, points of purchase, and more, all relating to the various projects with which he’s been involved over the years.
