The Afghan Whigs have shared another song from their forthcoming new album, In Spades. The new song, “Arabian Heights”, is driven largely by drummer Patrick Keeler’s performance. Greg Dulli says of Keeler’s contribution, “Rick [Nelson, who engineered the album] got incredible drum sounds, and what Patrick does on that song is a master class in drumming.” Check it out for yourself below.

In Spades releases on May 5th via Sub Pop. Get your copy of it HERE.
