Since their formation Built To Spill have released eight studio albums to major critical acclaim all around the globe. Led by Doug Martsch, the band’s most recent release: Untethered Moon came out in 2015 on Warner Brothers Records.
After a twelve-year hiatus, The Afghan Whigs stormed back to life in 2012 with a massive worldwide reunion tour. Since then they have released two new critically acclaimed albums on Sub Pop: Do To The Beast and last year’s In Spades which was named by Pitchfork as one of the the Top 20 Rock Albums of 2017.
