It’s officially here!

Happy release to Cry Cry Cry! For those of you that ordered from WolfParade.com you likely haven’t received your physical order yet. I heard directly from the Cardboard Box Project and they said unfortunately there was a delay with the signed vinyl portion of the pre-sale. They finally received the signed sleeves yesterday and have started processing orders. All orders that haven’t already been shipped will go out this week. Hope that helps!

Wolf Parade took part in a Reddit/AMA the other day. Read through their responses here.

Check the guys out on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday October 11th! Set your DVR’s!

LP4 ‘Cry Cry Cry’ out on October 6th!!

LP4 news is finally here! The 4th Wolf Parade record will be called ‘Cry Cry Cry’ with a release date of October 6th via Sub Pop. The record is already available for pre-order through WolfParade.com. Here is the full tracklisting:

  1. Lazarus Online
  2. You’re Dreaming
  3. Valley Boy
  4. Incantation
  5. Flies on the Sun
  6. Baby Blue
  7. Weaponized
  8. Who Are Ya
  9. Am I am Alien Here
  10. Artificial Life
  11. King of Piss and Paper
    -47 minutes
    The first single ‘Valley Boy’ had been played in sets since the shows in February and it’s good to finally have an official title for it. Here’s the video:

From the press release: “Valley Boy,” a Bowie-inflected anthem for which Spencer wrote lyrics after Leonard Cohen died the day before the 2016 election (“The radio’s been playing all your songs, talking about the way you slipped away up the stairs, did you know that it was all gonna go wrong?”). “You’re Dreaming,” also influenced by the election and the spinning shock that followed, is driving, urgent power pop that draws from artists like Tom Petty and what Dan calls one of his “default languages” for writing music. The swirly, synth-heavy crescendo of “Artificial Life” takes on the struggle of artists and at-risk communities (“If the flood should ever come, we’ll be last in the lifeboat”).

So far we don’t have any new tour dates to report. With the exception of the likely leaked October 25th date in Michigan, we have no other solo dates to post. But I’m hoping with the album news out it will mean dates will be released soon!
