Pitchfork: Why? Reveal New Album Details

Anticon genre-skippers (and aren't they all?) Why? have unveiled the tracklist of Alopecia, their third album and also the source of recent single "The Hollows". Alopecia apparently showcases a pretty wide range of influences, and its songs were recorded mostly sampler-free as a live band. In addition to songwriter Yoni Wolf, Josiah Wolf, and Doug McDiarmid, that band has expanded to include Fog members Andrew Broder and Mark "Bear" Erickson. Anticon will release Alopecia on March 11, with a European release on Tomlab to follow. Why? have two shows scheduled soon, one in San Francisco on January 12 and another in L.A. three days later.
