TUNE The Afghan Whigs - Demon in Profile
'Demon in Profile' is the debut single from the The Afghan Whigs' spellbinding new album 'In Spades'.
The new album will be available on CD / 180 gram-LP / CS / DL worldwide on May 5th from Sub Pop Records .
The album, led by the single 'Demon in Profile' and standouts 'Oriole', 'Copernicus', 'Arabian Heights' and 'Toy Automatic', is the follow-up to the band’s internationally-acclaimed album '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 emphasizes 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.”
