So it’s been awhile since we’ve posted an update. Here’s some news:

Operators have been nominated for the 2015 Canadian SirusXM Indie Awards for Electronic Artist or Group of the Year. The awards are handed out on May 9th in Toronto during Canadian Music Week. Congrats to Operators on their nomination!

A little late to mention but the Operators song “True” was featured in the season finale of the HBO series “Girls” that aired on March 22nd. Congrats!!

Operators are set to play Ottawa BluesFest on July 14th!

A few months ago Operators visited Montreal radio station CJLO and performed ‘Cold Light’ and the unreleased ‘I Die’. Check out audio of both songs: http://www.cjlo.com/sessions/operators-live-at-cjlo

Dan Boeckner is set to be a 2015 CBC Music Searchlight judge. Searchlight is “the hunt for Canada’s best new artist”. Searchlight judges will be responsible for selecting five of the 10 national finalists, as well as announcing the final four acts live on Q on CBC Radio ?on May 12. Finally, they’ll crown a winner on Friday, May 15. If you’re Canadian you can check out the 3,000+ entries and vote on them: http://music.cbc.ca/#!/cbcsearchlight/

Not sure how I missed it but Dante Decaro posted a link to a new song of his on his Facebook page. You can listen to ‘On the Loose’ at http://www.killdevilhillsrecords.com/songs. Also we just found this photo he posted from March and it’s making us smile:

As most of you are already aware, Operators had to cut their tour with The New Pornographers short due to visa issues. Hoping to hear new music from them soon. Follow them on twitter ( @operators_band) in the meantime.

Speaking of social media…I’ve decided to start an instagram account for this fan site. Just a place to share photos of Wolf Parade, Operators, Moonface and all the bands that we love! Follow along! Also feel free to DM us photos you’ve taken of these bands and we’ll post them!
