Watch The Afghan Whigs’ NSFW Video For “Oriole”

The Afghan Whigs’ have released the official (NSFW) video for “Oriole” from their upcoming album In Spades today. The video was directed by Amy Nicole Hood and appears to be homage to 1960’s horror films. The video to the track features plenty of scantily clad witches in all sorts of provocative situations. If you’re squeamish or adverse to graphic nudity, you might want to look away. If you’re into the homage and dig erotica, feast your eyes on the short film that accompanies the stellar track. In Spades will be released on May 5th via Subpop.

In further exciting news, The Afghan Whigs will be performing a sold out show at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY on Tuesday, May 23rd.

The Afghan Whigs have also announced their first set of dates in support of In Spades in Europe. The band will visit 17 countries this summer including performances at Primavera Sound and Northside Festival. Ed Harcourt will be supporting on all European headline shows.
