The Afghan Whigs are back with their first new music in nearly five years. The alt rock icons have returned today with the rowdy single “I’ll Make You See God,” along with the announcement of a 12-date US tour for May 2022.
“I’ll Make You See God” sounds just as demanding as its title implies, driven by a pummeling guitar riff that persists throughout the entire track. “That’s one of the hardest rock songs we’ve ever done,” remarked singer Greg Dulli in a press release. “It was written and performed on sheer adrenaline.”
Rather than the R&B tinge The Afghan Whigs were previously known for, the song takes things more in line with grunge and post-punk; as usual, however, Dulli’s distinctive rasp takes center stage. Listen to “I’ll Make You See God” below.
In May. The Afghan Whigs’ will hit the road on their 12-date 2022 tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday, and you can buy them over at Ticketmaster. Scroll onwards to see their full schedule.
