The Afghan Whigs have announced a new album, How Do You Burn?, and shared a new song from it, “The Getaway,” via a video for it. How Do You Burn? is the band’s first new album in five years and features contributions by late Mark Lanegan, who sings backing vocals on two tracks and tragically passed away in February. “It was Mark who named the album,” frontman Greg Dulli explains in a press release. The band have also announced some tour dates.

How Do You Burn? is due out September 9 via Royal Cream/BMG. Philip Harder and Patrick Pierson directed the video for “The Getaway.” Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

How Do You Burn? includes “I’ll Make You See God,” the album’s opening track, which was shared as a single in February.

The album was recorded during the pandemic, with the band members in different areas of the country. Dulli, his co-producer Christopher Thorn, and drummer Patrick Keeler were together in California. Bassist John Curley, guitarist Jon Skibic, and strings man Rick Nelson recorded their own parts in Cincinnati, New Jersey and New Orleans, respectively.

“Once we got the system down, we started flying,” says Dulli in the press release.

The album also features guest vocalists Susan Marshall, Van Hunt, and Marcy Mays.

The Afghan Whigs’ last album, In Spades, came out in 2017 via Sub Pop. Read our in-depth interview with Greg Dulli on the album.
