WHY? touring

Another good fall tour has announced both Tucson and Phoenix shows. A unique combination of folk, indie rock and hip-hop, Oakland's WHY? has plenty of followers anticipating their new record, Eskimo Snow, out this fall on Anticon.

I'm pretty new to the band, but the promo single for Eskimo Snow sounds great, and this interview with Pitchfork paints an interesting picture of WHY?.
