WU LYF announce North American tour after a lifetime of being told they'd never announce anything

Let’s go way back to the beginning of 2010 when you first heard about the hype surrounding around WU LYF, the four-piece band from Manchester, England who were supposedly turning old notions of indie-rock into something exciting and new. The band was immersed in mystery, which filled the hole in many people’s hearts left from the departure of the television series Lost. Where did they come from? What does WU LYF mean? Oh… well in that case, how can we join the Lucifer Youth Foundation?

WU LYF have garnered attention by releasing Go Tell Fire to the Mountain independently on their own L Y F Recordings label, due for physical release on September 6, and also by giving the press little information. But the time for answers is now! WU LYF will embark on a US tour, answering burning questions from fans, such as, “Will they wear button-down shirts, t-shirts, or wife-beaters?” No matter your question, I challenge you (the reader) to see WU LYF live and discover the truest answer — whether or not they’re just another over-hyped band or really something special.

In the meantime, Go Tell Fire to the Mountain is available for digital release through their website and other digital vendors. Or is it? Yeah, it is.
