    Why? has announced their most extensive tour yet, running from March 6 in San Francisco to April 19 in Eugene, OR. An impressive array of opening acts will rotate in and out of the trek, too, including YACHT, Mount Eerie, and Samara Lubelski, who was recently seen playing wicked violin melodies in Thurston Moore's band.

    Why?'s latest LP, Alopecia, hits your friendly neighborhood record shop on March 11 through Anticon. An MP3 of their recently-recorded (and unreleased) Cure cover, "Close to Me," is available now at http://www.anticon.com/anthill/WHY-close_to_me.mp3.
