The Afghan Whigs Release New Video for “Lost in the Woods,” European Tour 2015 Dates

Following the Western-themed revenge drama of “Algiers” and the kinetic “Matamoros” videos, comes the dream like “Lost in the Woods,” the latest visual from The Afghan Whigs‘ Do to the Beast, directed Phil Harder. Stereogum says of the video, “Longtime Whigs collaborator Phil Harder directed the clip, which successfully transports the band’s back-alley soul catharsis to a different kind of shady environment.”

The Afghan Whigs are currently wrapping up their North American tour in support of Do to the Beast, with a show tonight, October 29th in Denver at the Bluebird Theatre and October 31st in Austin at The Mohawk. The band has just announced this morning a second European tour which will commence in early 2015, beginning February 2nd in Dublin, IE at Whelans and ending with a show on February 24th in Tel Aviv, IL at Barby.

The Afghan Whigs’ Do to the Beast is the group’s acclaimed new album and first-ever U.S. & U.K. Top 40 album debut: In the U.S. the album entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart at No. 32 and in the U.K., Do to the Beast entered at No. 40.
