Twilight Singers announce new album, Dynamite Steps


    Greg Dulli is a guy with a few forward slashes in front of his name, as in “The former Afghan Whigs frontman/Twilight Singers frontman/member of The Gutter Twins/solo artist Greg Dulli has a very busy business card.” It’s that second one, though, that seems to be his most favorite these days. Sure, he’s still on tour as a solo artist, but as previously reported, a new Twilight Singers album is indeed on the way.

    Due for release on February 15th, 2011 via Sub Pop, the explosively-titled Dynamite Steps will be the followup to 2006’s Powder Burns (we’re sensing something of a motif with these guys.) Via a press release for the LP, the album was apparently “shot on location” at various locations throughout the U.S., all important to Dulli, creating an album where the “weary nighttime decadence of New Orleans rubs up against the oppressive sunshine of Los Angeles and the desolation of Joshua Tree’s desert vistas.” That probably ate up a lot of frequent flier miles. Much like the majority of his career, Dulli tapped a few names to collaborate on the album, including Ani DiFranco, Joseph Arthur, Petra Haden, Nick McCabe (The Verve), and Gutter Twins collaborator Mark Lanegan.

    Below, you can checl out the the album’s tracklist and first single, “Blackbird and the Fox”, along with the remaining tour dates for Dulli’s solo jaunt below. Additional tour dates for 2011 are said to be forthcoming. Again, Dynamite Steps hits stores February 15th, 2011 via Sub Pop.
