TVD Radar: The Afghan Whigs announce vinyl reissues of first three Sub Pop releases, in stores 9/22

VIA PRESS RELEASE | The Afghan Whigs’ first three releases on Sub Pop Records—Up In It, Congregation, and the “Uptown Avondale” EP—will be released on 180-gram vinyl on September 8th via the Sub Pop Megamart and at the merch table for all upcoming Afghan Whigs North American shows. Retail stores will begin carrying these titles on September 22nd.

Both Congregation and Up In It have been out of print on vinyl for several years now, and “Uptown Avondale” has never been available on vinyl in the U.S. ever. All three titles will also have special Sub Pop “Loser” editions as well (details below).

The Afghan Whigs are currently in Europe 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 6th at a Sold Out show 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).

In Spades, the group’s spellbinding new album is available on CD / 180 gram-LP / CS / DL worldwide from Sub Pop. Led by the singles “Demon In Profile,” “Oriole,” and “Arabian Heights” along with standouts “Copernicus,” and “Toy Automatic,” it is the follow-up to the band’s internationally acclaimed Do to the Beast. In Spades was recorded in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Joshua Tree and written and produced by Greg Dulli.
