Originally hailing from Cincinnati, the Afghan Wigs were an early, non-Pacific Northwest signing to Sub Pop. Probably because of their raw sound — which was akin to that of the early Replacements and had a soulful vibe in line with what the label was cultivating in underground music at the time — the Whigs fared better long-term than many of their contemporaries. The act's 1993 album, Gentlemen, met with great critical acclaim for its strong, literate songwriting and emotional honesty. Singer Greg Dulli became somewhat notorious for his personal excesses, but in interviews, he has maintained an uncommon grace and openness about his personal demons. Having amicably split in 2001, the Whigs reunited in 2012 for an All Tomorrow's Parties gig curated by Dulli; that show spurred the current tour, which features the group's first new material in over a decade.
