The Afghan Whigs release 'Gentlemen At 21' today

It’s been a year of note for The Afghan Whigs. In April the seminal indie rock band unveiled their first new album in 16 years, and today they release Gentlemen at 21—a collection of songs that celebrates the 21st anniversary of their major label debut, Gentlemen.

In addition to a newly remastered tracklist, Gentlemen at 21 will include plenty of bonus content—e.g. rare B-Sides, live performances and previously unreleased demos. It’s available today digitally and as a 2-CD set, and on November 28 a 3-LP deluxe edition will be made available on vinyl.

Lead singer Greg Dulli said of the original 1993 release, “It was a bad year for me and some of my friends, in terms of relationships and dealing with some of my own little ghosts. A year of just some kinds of remembrances and stuff that I guess I will never be able to forget, especially since I wrote it all down and made a record out of it.”

And hey we're all pretty glad you did.
