The Afghan Whigs announce vinyl reissues of first three Sub Pop releases


THE AFGHAN WHIGS' FIRST THREE SUB POP RELEASES
TO BE RELEASED ON 180-GRAM VINYL
ON SEPTEMBER 8

 


August 9, 2017 - The Afghan Whigs' first three releases on Sub Pop Records - Up In It,Congregation and the Uptown Avondale EP - will be released on 180-gram vinyl on September 8th via the Sub Pop Megamart and at the merch table for all upcoming Afghan Whigs North American shows. Retail stores will begin carrying these titles on September 22nd.
Both Congregation and Up In It have been out of print on vinyl for several years now, and Uptown Avondale has never been available on vinyl in the U.S. ever.  All three titles will also have special Sub Pop "Loser" editions as well (details below).
The Afghan Whigs are currently in Europe for a brief second leg of their tour which includes performances at Way Out West Festival, Haldern Pop Festival, Flow Festival and Pukkelpop.  The band will begin their North American tour on September 6th at a Sold Out show in Orlando, FL. The tour includes three Canadian shows (Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver) and the band will be playing several markets they haven't visited in years (Richmond, Birmingham, Kansas City, Houston).
In Spades, the group's spellbinding new album is available on CD / 180 gram-LP / CS / DL worldwide from Sub Pop. Led by the singles "Demon In Profile," "Oriole," and "Arabian Heights" along with standouts "Copernicus," and "Toy Automatic," it is the follow-up to the band's internationally acclaimed Do to the Beast.  In Spades was recorded in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Memphis and Joshua Tree and written and produced by Greg Dulli.

The Afghan Whigs have released two videos from the album so far: "Demon In Profile," directed by longtime collaborator Phil Harder, and "Oriole," helmed by erotic art director Amy Nicole Hood.
