Woman Gives Birth To Tomato! is the twenty-fourth studio album by Omar Rodríguez-López, released under the name Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group. Although Rodriguez-Lopez Productions intended to release the album on December 28, 2012 (which is the date listed on the Bandcamp page[4]), it was only made available on January 1, 2013, less than 2 hours after the release of Equinox. Since Omar Rodriguez Lopez's recent efforts were focused on his newly formed band, Bosnian Rainbows, this album was not as anticipated as it had been in 2011, when the album cover art had first appeared in the booklet for Rodriguez-Lopez's compilation album, Telesterion.

Since 2014 the album is no longer available to purchase officially, as Rodriguez-Lopez's Bandcamp page has been taken down after a split with Sargent House label.
