MARCH 22, 2022 – WHY NOT, the Minneapolis, MN based trio composed of Henry Breen, Isaac Dell, and Joshua MacGregor – have announced details surrounding their upcoming new, self-titled album, to be released May 13, 2022. It’s the full-length follow up to their ‘VERY WHY NOT’ EP released in February and was produced by producer and brother of MacGregor, Caleb Hinz (Hippo Campus, Samia, Miloe).
‘WHY NOT’ is the Minneapolis trio’s self-titled mission statement. Fueled by the tension and uncertainty of the time and the changes in the band’s personal lives—from graduating high school and moving out of their childhood homes to growing into and out of long term relationships—and colored by the joy of creating with each other and feeling inspiration in dark times.
The band have released the first single and official music video for “IN LOVE WITH THE SOUND”, which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/KZfrHGtljLc
“It’s an ode to classic rock performance videos of the past. The idea was also to put our chemistry as a band front and center, stripping back the bells and whistles and highlighting our years of friendship and playing together,” says the band on the music video.

The band has pivoted from their math rock and punk-informed roots, incorporating a wider variety of musical influences. The result is a virtuosic, genre-fluid statement from a young band just beginning to harness the heights of their craft.
The album follows the release of the bands EP ‘VERY WHY NOT’. The five track EP is a manic, genre-fluid collection of songs; a pure sonic bombast, driven by spontaneity and teeming with the twin joys of creation and friendship can be streamed here: https://ffm.to/verywhynot
It included the singles “CASKET ft. papa mbye” and “WE CAN BE ALWAYS ft. Lupin”. Lupin is Jake Luppen of the band Hippo Campus. “CASKET” grabbed mentions and adds with best of playlists and round ups at places like Consequence of Sound, Ones To Watch, UPROXX and was also recently featured as song of the day with The Current.

The members of WHY NOT met while playing in a middle school music class at Great River School in St. Paul, MN. Before any band member could drive, they had released their first album and booked their first tour.
