Greg Dulli of Afghan Whigs To Release Second Solo Album

Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli has revealed he has been working on a solo album due to hit your ears in February.

The album – called Random Desire – was born out of necessity. After the last Whigs album In Spades, drummer Patrick Keeler took time to tour with The Raconteurs, bassist John Curly wanted to return to study and guitarist Dave Rosser tragically passed away from colon cancer. This unfortunate series of events sent Dulli back to the bedroom, taking full responsibility for putting the rock orchestra in his head onto a recording.

Recorded at his home in Silverlake with stints in San Bernadino and New Orleans, Dulli recorded much of what you hear himself. Not content with his own talents, however, he also enlisted help from current Afghan Whigs’ guitarist Jon Skibic, multi-instrumentalist Rick G. Nelson, producer and jack-of-all-trades Mathias Schneeberger (Twilight Singers, Brant Bjork and the Bros), actual physician Dr. Stephen Patt on upright bass and pedal steel, and drummer Jon Theodore (QOTSA, The Mars Volta).

Random Desire will be Dulli’s second solo album. His first, Amber Headlights, was released in 2005.

The band has announced a string of European dates in support of the album, which you can see down below.

Random Desire will be released on February 21, but you can hear the first single here:
