Why? dropped their fourth studio album, Mumps, Etc., back in October. Now they return with a B-side to their single “Watermarks”, and true to the season, it’s a yuletide ode titled “The Water You Walk” (via Stereogum). Odds are the carolers won’t sing this one, but it’s better than any “Silent Night, Holy Night” crap you’ll hear in the coming weeks. Ah, humbug.

The band has tagged the release with some fresh dates for the New Year, which kick off February 8th in the ultra-happy confines of Cincinnati, OH and wrap up the following month at Austin’s South by Southwest. Astronautalis and Baths will provide support on select dates.

Stream the track and consult the dates below.
