I want to thank all of you for all the support over the years for the 15 years this site has been a resource. I hope to maintain some aspects of this website for the following years but plan to use mainly social media to keep the fan base informed. Thanks!!
Finally the site is back! Thanks to our site admin Rin for clearing the site of malware! The forum is still being worked on and hope to have that up and running soon.
First thing to mention is Wolf Parade have put together a GoFundMe campaign to help those who suffered in Puerto Rico. Currently their goal is $10,000. For every show they are donating a pair of tickets to people to donate to the fund as well as a a signed vinyl.
I am helping that fund out as well by selling old Handsome Furs and Wolf Parade posters. Check my ebay page for more info.
Now for some updates! First big one is that Spencer Krug joined twitter (@krugspencer) and proceeded to drop some surprises. First he uploaded a lost track called Rasputo to his soundcloud page. Then he dropped an old version of All Fires that featured Camilla on back up vocals. Hope we get more surprises soon!
Wolf Parade added dates this year that have them doing a short stint of shows with Japandroids. Then they head to Europe. Also doing some festivals including Primavera and Sasquatch. Here’s the full list:

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!
