Order info here.

Greg Dulli in an interview with NME: “Luckily, Patrick, Christopher and I live in
California so I was able to play live with them, [which] gave the record the immediacy
I think it has. There was so much uncertainty, hopelessness, fear and confusion in the
world that I was working on songs to transport me to another reality, so I really feel
like this album was an escape.”
Full interview here.

The late monumental voice Mark Lanegan came up with the LP’s title.
He contributed backing vocals to two tracks on the record before his
sudden death last February.

Turn Up The Volume: Greg Dulli‘s pipes reach for the sky throughout this new standout LP. His unique rock voice is the unwearying motor of this burning blast. And when the songs are of supreme quality, as all 10 terrific tunes here are, and your bustling band is on a raucous roll with the vitality of young wolves you end up with an undeniable winner of a record. Not only of the past month but also aiming for the top seat at the end of the year. The Aghan Whigs are a soul band at heart with a brawny blues resonance. Awesome group, awesome album.
