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.
Do To The Beast features core members Greg Dulli and bassist John Curley, but it is the first Whigs album that doesn't feature the band's original lead guitarist Rick McCollum.
We have Bruce Springsteen on the cover of the new Uncut, so it's appropriate that the free CD with the issue kicks off rousingly with Brooklyn's The Men and a track called "Another Night from their new album, Tomorrow's Hits that sounds raucously like The E Street Band having a noisy bash at "Train In Vain" by The Clash.
Calexico’s new album, Algiers, is reviewed in the current issue of Uncut (October 2012, Take 185) – so we thought we’d take a trip back to April 2003 (Take 71), when Uncut’s John Mulvey flew out to Tucson, Arizona to discover more about the duo’s redrawing of the alt.country map.
