    Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs, The Twilight Singers) has announced an upcoming 2016 solo tour that will begin in Ireland in February, and culminate with two shows in New Orleans in early April. The singer will be backed by a small band and is slated to perform "a wide selection of songs encompassing his entire career along with debuting several new ones as well."

    One track he'll surely reel out is Sharon Van Etten's achingly tortured, "A Crime," which the brooding singer recently covered and made very much his own, employing driving David Gray-synth lines and guest vocalist Ani DiFranco (you can give it a listen and download over at the newly launched gregdulli.com). Also likely making the set list will be songs like "Debonair" and "Gentlemen," from the Whigs' most successful commercial release, 1993's Gentlemen.

    Though the 50-year-old Cincinnati-based Dulli never truly infiltrated the mainstream, with his various projects, he maintains a level of indie-icon status on par with the likes of grunge legend Mark Lanegan (with whom he shares the group The Gutter Twins) and Dave Grohl, who he has collaborated with at various times.

    After the successful reception of 2014's Do to the Beast (the band's first release in 16 years), The Afghan Whigs are currently working on a new album for Sub Pop Records, scheduled for release in 2016.

    Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, October 23, via gregdulli.com.
