Dulli Regroups With Lanegan, Afghan Whigs
Vocalist Mark Lanegan has joined Greg Dulli to share lead vocal duties when the latter’s Twilight Singers tour to support their newest album, “Powder Burns.” The trek, which begins Oct. 24 in San Francisco, follows the group’s summer stint in Europe, as well as Dulli’s recent announcement that the Afghan Whigs will reunite in the studio later this month.
Opening the shows will be Stars Of Track & Field and Jeff Klein; Mighty Fine, featuring longtime guest Twilight Singers vocalist Steve Myers, will perform in place of Klein at the Nov. 16 tour finale in Brooklyn.
Dulli and Lanegan have previously performed together as the Gutter Twins and have regularly contributed to each other’s projects since 2000. The pair have recorded 13 songs for a Gutter Twins album but no release date is on the horizon for the project.
Continuing in the spirit of reconnection, Dulli will convene this month with former Afghan Whigs bandmates John Curley, Rick McCollum and Michael Horrigan to record two new tracks for an upcoming Rhino retrospective, “Unbreakable.” After rehearsing in Cincinnati, the quartet will head to Memphis record at Ardent Studios with longtime Whigs collaborator Jeff Powell.
