The Sydney noodle-core fun-lords will drop the follow-up to 2014's 'WWTDWWD?' next month

Sydney-based 'feelgood hipcore' outfit Ted Danson With Wolves laid low in 2015, but they're looking to make far more ruckus once again this year, starting with the revelation of new EP Don't Tell Me What's Wrong With You, Because I Will Find Out & Tell You. It Will Make Sense To You & Work.

Set for release on Friday 5 February, the new work follows the band's excellent 2014 full-length WWTDWWD?, with the first taste of fresh Teddy Deez coming in the form of wide-ranging and typically erratic new cut Dr Ocatiers Vs The Webbing Man.

The album was recorded back in August at Marrickville's Soundworks Studios, with guitarist/vocalist Josh Dowton handling desk duties before passing on the goods to Saff Mastering's Carl Saff. It will be released on 12" vinyl (and digitally) and feature three songs, including the lead and title tracks, as well as a third cut, the Simpsons-inspired In The Garden Of Eden, Baby. It's available for pre-order from today via TDWW's Bandcamp.

Even better, Ted Danson With Wolves have complemented the new recording with the announcement that they'll be hitting the road "pretty dang hard" throughout February and March; they kick off with back-to-back performances in Melbourne (5-6 February, the second of which being all-ages) before heading to Sydney for an AA showing at Beatdisc Records on 12 February. The lads hop the ditch to New Zealand from there, heading through Auckland (19 February), Hamilton (20 February, AA), Auckland again (21 February, AA), Palmerston North (24 February, AA), Wellington (25 February), Christchurch (26 February) and a yet-to-be-advised performance on the South Island on 27 February.

Following their stint in NZ, TDWW head back to Oz, hitting Canberra for an all-ages showing at Smith's Alternative Bookshop on 4 March, heading on to Wollongong (5 march, AA), Brisbane (11 March, AA; 12 March, 18+), Newcastle (18 March) and Sydney (19 March, AA), bringing their comprehensive sojourn to a close at Wentworth Falls' Backhouse on 26 March.
