Afghan Whigs will release their first new album in 16 years later this year.

The band, fronted by Greg Dulli, will release 'Do To The Beast' on April 14 via Sub Pop. It is their first album of new material since '1965' was released in 1998. The band reunited briefly in 2012 for a series of festival dates.

The Afghan Whigs will play live at Coachella around the release, performing at the Californian festival on April 11 and 18.

Speaking about his decision to reform the band with Spin in 2012, frontman Dulli revealed: "I did this acoustic tour about a year and a half ago and [Whigs bassist] John Curley did six of the shows with me, and we had a great time. We hadn’t spent any time on the road together since the band. In the spring, I spent a couple days in Minneapolis with [Whigs guitarist] Rick McCullom, and that was also a great time. Plus, I had nothing really pressing this summer, so it gives me something to do. "

After forming in Ohio in 1986, The Afghan Whigs released six studio albums. Their debut album 'Big Top Halloween' was released in 1988 and was subsequently followed by albums including 'Gentleman' in 1993, 'Black Love' in 1996 and '1965' in 1998. The band recorded a cover of Frank Ocean's 'Lovecrimes' in 2012 and performed at South By South West in 2013.
