Greg Dulli

Fans of highly emotional, rhythmically driven alternative rock can rejoice. Greg Dulli — the frontman of The Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins with grunge hero Mark Lanegan, and perpetually underrated Afghan Whigs — recently announced two big musical steps forward. First, The Twilight Singers, his more low-key and lovely project, is finally recording new album, nearly five years after the release of the ever-so-sultry Powder Burns. Second, Dulli -- now 45, still shaggy haired and tortured but no longer known for his perpetual chain smoking -- is embarking on a solo tour. He's performing songs from his entire catalog, which means his set will have a combination of the driving, slightly wild feel of Afghan Whigs songs like "Debonair" and the soft, haunting quality of The Twilight Singers. In short, it's everything that makes Dulli both a tearjerker and a heartthrob. With Shawn Smith. PAIGE RICHMOND
