The Afghan Whigs – “Lost In The Woods” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Although the Afghan Whigs would do a killer cover version of Bon Iver’s “The Woods” and/or Kanye West’s “Lost In The World,” their song “Lost In The Woods” is an original from this year’s comeback album Do To The Beast. The song now has a video that’s appropriately set in the woods, involving an array of eerie characters including a wolf, two dancing women in white dresses, and a creepy skeleton-man. Longtime Whigs collaborator Phil Harder directed the clip, which successfully transports the band’s back-alley soul catharsis to a different kind of shady environment. Watch below to get in the Halloween spirit.

Do To The Beast is out now on Sub Pop. Check out the Afghan Whigs on tour all over this world:
