Do To The Beast is the name of the record that will contain nothing but brand-new songs. The title is most likely inspired by the work of Aleister Crowley. It will be released on April 14th via Sub Pop, the record label that got them on the map back in 1990 when they released Up In It, produced by Jack Endino, as he was essentially plotting the whole Seattle sound of the 90s.
An interesting thing to notice is that the one who broke the news about The Afghan Whigs’ new album was none other than Mr. Saul Goodman, AKA Bob Odenkirk, through his Twitter account:
The great Greg Dulli of whom I am a fan tells me new Afghan Whigs album coming soon. 1st in 16 years! Kickass pic.twitter.com/fe385PWsdV

Do To The Beast will be released on April 14th on the left side of the Atlantic by Sub Pop, as mentioned, and the band will play both Fridays on Coachella.
