The Afghan Whigs release new single

The Afghan Whigs have released a cover of Pleasure Club's "You Want Love"

The Afghan Whigs have made the song “You Want Love” available as a free download on their website. The song will also be available on all digital download and streaming services as well. Originally released by Pleasure Club in 2004 on their second and final album, the Afghan Whigs’ version of the song features the original singer and writer James Hall. The track has been a staple of The Afghan Whigs’ live set in Europe during the In Spades tour.

“Pleasure Club was a legendary New Orleans band and Dave Rosser and I had spoken for years about performing this song,” Greg Dulli commented. “In light of his passing we decided to record it in his honor.”

The Afghan Whigs return to Europe next week for a brief second leg of their tour which includes performances at Way Out West Festival, Haldern Pop Festival, Flow Festival and Pukkelpop. The band will begin their North American tour on September 6 in Orlando, FL. The tour includes three Canadian shows (Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver) and the band will be playing several markets they haven’t visited in years (Richmond, Birmingham, Kansas City, Houston).
