Afghan Whigs Hit Studio!
Following the current leg of The Twilight Singers 2006 world tour, the band will take a short break while Greg Dulli, John Curley, Rick McCollum and a to-be-named drummer convene to work on four Afghan Whigs tracks for the upcoming Rhino retrospective. An updated release date for that album has not been publicized.
These recordings will be the first new tracks from the band in 8 years, since The Afghan Whigs’ swan song, 1965.
Earlier this year, the band’s previously unreleased cover of Nightime appeared on the Big Star Tribute Album.
