Dark Dark Dark announced today that they will be joining Why? on tour starting at the end of September, undoubtedly a huge opportunity for the local baroque-influenced folk group. Why? have been getting heaps of press lately in anticipation of their newest release, Eskimo Snow, which is due out September 22, and scoring the opening spot on the Why? tour should help to shine a spotlight on Dark Dark Dark, who are continuing to assert themselves on a national level.
In conjunction with their newest tour, Dark Dark Dark will be releasing a 7" that features remixes of their songs by a couple of notable artists: an Odd Nosdam treatment of "Junk Bones" (available for download below), and Dosh's remix of "All the Things." The 7" will also come with a download for a third remix, "Colors," by Tom Inhaler.
