“A song that strikes this band’s usual balance between deep melancholy
and raw rock ‘n’ roll swagger”

The Afghan Whigs have announced their spellbinding new album In Spades, out Friday May 5 on Sub Pop via Inertia Music, and dropped the dramatic film clip for its first single "Demon In Profile". The album, led by “Demon In Profile” and standouts “Oriole”, “Copernicus”, “Arabian Heights” and “Toy Automatic”, is the follow-up to the band’s internationally acclaimed Do to the Beast.  In Spades, written and produced by Greg Dulli, was recorded in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Memphis and Joshua Tree.

The album is a searing and soulful rock effort that emphasises its pop instincts while contrasting with the seductive themes found throughout.  From its evocative cover art to the troubled spirits haunting its halls, In Spades casts a spell that challenges the listener to unpack its dark metaphors and spectral imagery. “It’s a spooky record,” notes Greg Dulli, Afghan Whigs’ songwriter and frontman. “I like that it’s veiled. It’s not a concept album per se, but as I began to assemble it, I saw an arc and followed it. To me it’s about memory – in particular, how quickly life and memory can blur together.

Earlier today, The Afghan Whigs’ Dulli sat for an interview with BBC 6Music to premiere “Demon In Profile” and discuss In Spades. Listen here.
