The Afghan Whigs have returned from hiatus with powerful new single I'll Make You See God, which frontman Greg Dulli describes as "one of the hardest rock songs we’ve ever done."

The group's first new song since the release of 2017's In Spades, I'll Make You See God   was "written and performed on sheer adrenalin" according to Dulli. The single is the first release from the new-look Whigs, with former Blind Melon guitarist Christopher Thorn joining Dulli and long-time bandmates John Curley, Rick Nelson and Patrick Keeler. Since the release of In Spades, Dulli released his first solo album under his own name, 2020's Random Desire.

I'll Make You See God is set to feature in the upcoming PlayStation game Gran Turismo 7, due for release on March 4. 

With deeply unfortunate timing, I'll Make You See God was released on the same day Greg Dulli's dear friend and former room-mate in Los Angeles, Mark Lanegan, passed away. Dulli responded to the news by posting a single photo of himself and Lanegan on social media.

The Afghan Whigs have also announced a short US tour. The band will play:
