California indie rock/hip-hop group WHY? have been busy promoting their latest studio album Moh Lhean, which peaked at number six on the Heatseekers Albums chart. Yesterday, the band released the music video for their latest single "One Mississippi," which was directed by Robby Massey. The Los Angeles director is no stranger to the group; back in 2015, he worked on the "Thinking About You" music video for frontman Yoni Wolf.

That wasn't the only announcement delivered to their fans. The group has also announced a trek across the United States, which kicks off on Feb. 2 and includes stops in Ohio, North Carolina, Texas and California. Their first tour for 2018 will feature performances at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on Feb. 5 and Denver's Bluebird Theater on Feb. 28. Tickets are on sale to the general public right now. Their full tour routing can be seen below.

Moh Lhean, which is out right now on Joyful Noise Recordings, is the follow up to WHY's 2012 studio album Mumps, Etc. The new release is the first album since 2003's Oaklandazulasylum to be recorded entirely at home. The 10 track album, which includes the single "This Ole King," was co-produced by Yoni and his brother Josiah.
