Why? Announce 2013 North American Tour, Play Vancouver

Why? Announce 2013 North American Tour, Play Vancouver
This fall saw the release of avant hip-hop squad Why?'s fourth full-length, Mumps, Etc., which the band travelled around the U.S. and Europe to support. Why? will keep repping the set in the new year, though, as they've announced another string of North American tour dates.

The Yoni Wolf-led ensemble hits the road in early February for a month-long trip that will see them teaming up with Dream Tiger, Sarah Winters, Baths and Astronautalis along the way. While the earlier legs of the trip skipped over Canada all together, this latest batch of dates features one up-north appearance at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret. You can catch all the details down below.

Why? also recently unveiled a video for Mumps, Etc. track "Paper Hearts," and you can watch Wolf spitting the song while undergoing a panoply of costume changes in the player beneath the tour schedule.
