About The Afghan Whigs

Beginning as a raw, garage-influenced rock band in the mold of the Replacements, Dinosaur Jr., and Mudhoney, the Afghan Whigs matured into a literate, moody, soul-inflected post-punk quartet who became one of the most critically acclaimed alternative bands of the 1990s. Singer, songwriter, and group leader Greg Dulli's songs were vivid stories of broken relationships and toxic masculinity accompanied by taut, R&B-influenced guitar rock, especially on 1992's Congregation and 1993's Gentlemen. The band upped the grooves while toning down the darker lyrical themes on 1998's 1965, their last LP before they disbanded in 2001. Dulli reunited the Afghan Whigs for live work in 2012, and with a rotating cast of accompanists, he took the group back to the studio for new projects, including the dark, densely arranged Do to the Beast (2014) and the more straightforward, guitar-based How Do You Burn? (2022).
