Cincinnati’s indie rappers WHY? are set to release Mumps, etc, the follow up to their 2009’s album Eskimo Snow.
The trio’s forthcoming full-length is described by the press release as “a meticulous work of morbid fascination and offbeat romanticism to easily rival the highlights of WHY?’s incendiary back catalogue”.
Ahead of the new album, WHY? released a six-track EP entitled Sod in the Seed, a couple of weeks ago. You can stream it in its entirety here.
To celebrate the new release, WHY? have just embarked on a huge North-American and European tour. You can check all the dates here.
The first taste from Mumps, etc is the brilliant opening track ‘Jonathan’s Hope’. Listen to it below.
