Why Not release new single “You’re My Kind”


“YOU’RE MY KIND”, the latest single to be released from WHY NOT’s forthcoming self-titled album was released today and streamed across all music platforms.

The album will be released on Friday, May 13, 2022. It is the full sequel to their EP “VERY WHY NOT” released in February and produced by Caleb Hinz (Hippo Campus, Samia, Miloe).

“WHY NOT” – featuring Henry Breen, Isaac Dell and Joshua MacGregor – is the Minneapolis trio’s eponymous mission statement. Fueled by the tension and uncertainty of the times and the changes in the group’s personal lives – from graduating from high school and moving from their childhood home to growing in and out of relationships at long-term – and colored by the joy of creating with each other and feeling the inspiration in dark times.

The group previously released the singles and music videos for “IN LOVE WITH THE SOUND” and “TAKE A MINUTE.”

WHY NOT pivoted from their math rock and punk roots, incorporating a wider variety of musical influences. The result is a virtuosic, free-flowing statement from a young band just beginning to hit the heights of their craft.

The album follows the release of the band’s EP ‘VERY WHY NOT’. The five-track EP is a collection of manic, flowing songs; a pure sound explosion, driven by spontaneity and teeming with the twinned joys of creation and friendship.

It included the singles “CASKET ft. papa mbye” and “WE CAN BE ALWAYS ft. Lupin”. Lupine is Jake Luppen from Hippo Campus. “CASKET” earned mentions and additions with top playlists and summaries in places like Consequence of Sound, Ones To Watch, UPROXX and was also recently featured as Song of the Day with The Current.
