How Do You Burn?, the ninth studio album from The Afghan Whigs and first in five years, finds the band in peak form, making the most vaulting and thrilling music of their lives. The album is virile, ready-for-action, and finds frontman Greg Dulli as swaggering, enigmatic and darkly charismatic as ever, and singing up a storm. 

For his supporting cast, Dulli called upon several serial collaborators including the late Mark Lanegan, who was a regular in Dulli's Twilight Singers, a partner in The Gutter Twins and a close friend. Lanegan makes his Afghan Whigs debut singing backup vocals on two tracks. "It was Mark who named the album," Dulli remarked.

Susan Marshall, who sang on the Whigs album 1965, returns to the fray for "Catch A Colt," one of the album's standout tracks, loose-limbed like Some Girls-era Rolling Stones and with the liquid polyrhythms of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk.

The multi-talented Van Hunt, who toured with the Whigs in 2012 and guested on Do to the Beast, brings his stacked-up, wall-of-sound vocals to both the plunging, voodoo-blues of "Jyja" and the audacious "Take Me There", transforming the latter, says Dulli, "into this feral gospel song. We sing really well together, but what Van does production-wise... it's unrelenting."
