Watch Afghan Whigs new video, “Algiers”

The reunited Afghan Whigs have released a video ahead of their first new album in 16 years. Scroll down to watch the video for the track "Algiers". It's taken from Do To The Beast, the band's first album since their last album, 1965, which was released in 1998. Do To The Beast will be released on Sub Pop on April 14.
