Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

Rockin’ on, despite it all

Newsday.com Greg Dulli makes a reflective return to his roots on ‘Powder Burns’ BY GLENN GAMBOA Newsday Staff Writer Greg Dulli has embraced his inner rocker again. Though his band The Twilight Singers started as a decidedly less-rocking electronic group in 2000, over the years the former front man of the Afghan Whigs has slowly been sliding toward the gritty, soul-steeped indie rock that made that band one of the most revered acts of the ’90s. The new album, “Powder Burns” (One Little Indian), roars…

Twilight stars shine

BostonHerald.com By Christopher John Treacy It was cool to hear the mix-tape variety of the between-set music for Monday’s Twilight Singers show at the Paradise. Former ABBA siren Frida’s 1982 Phil Collins-produced single ‘‘I Know There’s Something Going On” gave way to Janis Ian’s ‘‘At Seventeen,” and cuts by Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne were merged with snarky white-boy hip-hop tracks. No doubt the tracks were hand-picked by Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli, whose eclectic taste is what fueled the unique sound of his former…

The Twilight Singers fuse beauty and ferocity

The Boston Globe By Joan Anderman, Globe Staff Here’s the trouble with making a brilliant album of cinematic scope and intense nuance: It’s nearly impossible to play it live. Maybe that’s why Greg Dulli, the former Afghan Whig and mastermind of the Twilight Singers, performed only six of the 12 stunning songs from “Powder Burns” at the Paradise on Monday. Written while Dulli was coming out of a seven-year drug binge and laid to tape in a damaged New Orleans studio only weeks after Hurricane…

Dulli amplifies the intensity on new Twilight Singers

The Nashville City Paper By Ron Wynn Always known as one of the more impassioned, forceful vocalists in alternative rock, Greg Dulli’s newest venture with his current band The Twilight Singers is unquestionably the most lyrically striking, musically intense of his long career.

Dulli, ‘Twilight’ feel right at home

DelcoTimes – Rock Music Menu: Dulli, ‘Twilight’ feel right at home By MICHAEL CHRISTOPHER “I’m looking forward to playing the TLA again; it’s been a long time,” the singer told Rock Music Menu. “It’s one of my favorite venues, it’s got a great sound, and the stage sound there is beyond compare.” The Twilight Singers are touring in support of the brilliant new CD “Powder Burns,” quite possibly the most focused work Dulli has put out. His patented brand of emotional bloodletting has opened up…

Twilight Singers shine

nuvo.net / Twilight Singers shine Twilight Singers shine Show Review Abby Tonsing The Vogue Sunday, May 21 For The Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli, Indianapolis is synonymous with having a tambourine shoved up his ass. Or, the way he tells it, that’s what he remembers most about the last time The Twilight Singers came to town on April 8, 2004. Dulli remembers making fun of Peyton Manning. He remembers dedicating “Martin Eden” to Kurt Cobain. What he remembers most is crashing into drummer Bobby MacIntyre’s…

Twilight Singers in their zone

Twilight Singers in their zone BY BRADLEY BAMBARGER Star-Ledger Staff POP/ROCK “I’ve always been the guy who touches the hot stove — although I may have touched it for the last time,” says Greg Dulli, referring to the hedonistic matter at the heart of “Powder Burns,” his fifth and most potent album as ringleader of the Twilight Singers. “Powder Burns” — like most Dulli productions, whether Twilight records or those of his previous band,’90s alt-rock provocateurs the Afghan Whigs — is a concept album, atmospheric…

Eye of the Storm

Montreal Mirror : Music : Twilight Singers Eye of the storm From earthquakes to hurricanes, the Twilight Singers weather it all by JOHNSON CUMMINS Cincinnati, Ohio’s Afghan Whigs started out during the grunge revolution of the ’90s, but soon drifted away from the fuzzbox-stomping masses, integrating soul music and lyrics that weren’t exactly your standard punk-rock fare. Their chief songwriter, Greg Dulli, became known for his poison pen, littering his lyrics with desperate characters and hitting especially hard when he wrote what may be the…

Below the radar

The Daily Vanguard – Portland State University – Below the radar Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli talks about newest effort, Powder Burns By Brian Smith Is there anyone cooler in the world of rock than The Twilight Singers’ Greg Dulli? It’s a rhetorical question. The answer is “no.” Former frontman for The Afghan Whigs (lead contender for the most underrated band of the 1990s), current lead singer/songwriter of the California-based Twilight Singers, Dulli is, quite simply, the man. He’s sexy, dangerous and naughty. His voice…
