The Afghan Whigs release their seventh studio album 'Do to the Beast' next week... and you can hear the album exclusively on Classic Rock now
Described in the current issue of Classic Rock magazine as “unquestionably a rock album, but one possessed of a rare sophistication, swagger and cinematic scope”, ‘Do to the Beast’ is the reunited Ohio rockers first album since 1998’s ‘1965’.
“I think we’re a band that that we need around in 2014,” says frontman Greg Dulli. “That’s all I have ever worried about: what I want. That’s what art is for. You do art for yourself, and then you share it with people.”
