Why? Announce North American Tour for Mumps, Etc in 2013

Why? are building on the momentum of their two releases this Fall: the Sod In The Seed EP and their full-length album Mumps, etc. Astronautalis, Baths, Dream Tiger and Sarah Winters all get the opening slot at various times in the Why? tour, which is currently wrapping up in Europe before taking a holiday break. The North American Why? tour starts in February of 2013 and includes stops on both coasts and some midwest dates, too.

The story behind Mumps, etc is a complicated one, as the press release states they worked at Matt Pence's studio in Texas to complete the album : "They showed up with a pile of demos suspected to be nearly done-some five years in the making-but their aspirations evolved in the shadow of the great University of North Texas music school. Reaching out to a professor therein, they wrangled an ace crew of green-and-white gunslingers to exact their wild schemes: a string quartet, an eight-person choir, woodwinds, horns.
