North American Tour!


photo cred: Janice

Wolf Parade begin their North American tour today in Montreal! What better way to kick off a month long tour than to play the first two nights in your adopted home town!

As we posted earlier, you can (hopefully) purchase this Montreal show poster created by Jack Dylan at the two Montreal shows. For those of you unable to make it to Montreal, the poster should be available for sale soon. We also heard a rumor that their may be official tour posters for sale as well.

We were also alerted to to another amazing show poster, this one for the Seattle show at the Showbox. Created by John at The Bungaloo, the posters will be available to purchase at their site after the July 26th show.

Wolf Parade are the Artist of the Month over at X3, which brings together the three amazing Canadian music sites Exclaim.ca, Aux.tv, and CBC Radio 3. You can watch all their music videos and listen to a playlist of every song from Apologies to the Queen Mary, At Mount Zoomer, and EXPO 86!
