“Proactive Evolution” by WHY?

WHY? have shared the second track from their forthcoming album, entitled ‘Proactive Evolution’. WHY?’s sixth album, Moh Lhean, is due out March 3rd via Joyful Noise Recordings. A follow-up to 2012’s Mumps, Etc., it’s the first fully home-recorded WHY? album since the project’s 2003 debut, made mostly in Yoni Wolf’s studio and co-produced by his brother Josiah.

The band gave fans a first taste of the album with opener “This Ole King,” and have now shared “Proactive Evolution,” which features mewithoutYou’s Aaron Weiss. The track also samples the doctors who treated Wolf during a severe health scare that he encountered while working on Moh Lhean — an experience that had a strong influence on the album as a whole.
