Buzz on Alopecia, the forthcoming full-length from Yoni Wolf's WHY? project, has been circulating for a few months. Finally, Wolf and bandmates Josiah Wolf and Doug McDiarmid have stopped teasing and given us a release date, along with a final tracklisting.
The album drops on March 11 on anticon., and is said to be "a collection of hard rhymes and raw-spun songs forced through the stubborn smile of a life-lover scorned and reborn." In the vernacular, that means you can expect emotionally tinted bizarro indie rock with lots of feedback, heavy drums, and a little rapping too.
Alopecia follows on the heels of the band's very popular Elephant Eyelash album. Hopefully a tour is in the works for these guys. In the meantime, S.F. and L.A. dwellers can catch the band at a couple live dates, listed below.
