Afghan Whigs announce new album with video for "Demon in Profile"

My friends in The Afghan Whigs released a stunningly weird and and dark new video for their track "Demon in Profile," from their just-announced album In Spades to be released May 5. (And yes, that's Har Mar Superstar in the clip.) I've listened to the entire album and it's a phantasmagoric, expansive, soulful masterpiece that to my ear harkens back to the noir magnificence of my favorite Whigs record, Black Love (1996).

"(In Spades is) a spooky record," says Greg Dulli. "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."

A few weeks after the release of In Spades, the Whigs take their magick to Europe.
