Gutter Twins - Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees)

The Gutter Twins is a collaboration of two Alternative Rock icons. They have an album dropping next year. Press release here, video and tour dates below.

Sub Pop veterans Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan return to the label in its 20th year under the moniker The Gutter Twins for the March 4th, 2008 worldwide release of Saturnalia, their highly anticipated first album. In addition, the band has announced a handful of very special US and European show dates to preview the complex and carefully crafted songs in advance of the official record release....

Mark Lanegan rose to fame as singer for the much loved Seattle band Screaming Trees qnd Greg Dulli as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs. Following the break up of both groups, Lanegan and Dulli went on to achieve significant notice on their own....

The Gutter Twins was born out of a rumor told by Lanegan to a journalist after the two artists began collaborating together in various ways in 2002. What started as a rumor grew into an honest and raw record, and while Saturnalia brings together the driving forces behind ‘90s favorites, the record does not rest on the sonic laurels of these singer’s previous successes.
