Let’s catch up on the last 2 months shall we?
The biggest news being Wolf Parade began to play live again. Starting with a warm up run on Vancouver Island under the name ‘Del Scorcho’ and then continuing with sold out residency runs in New York City and Toronto.
London was followed by a solo show in Helsinki and 3 festival appearances: Best Kept Secret Festival, Northside Fest – DK, and Body and Soul Festival. Here’s a stream of their set from Best Kept Secret Festival:
Wolf Parade’s next shows are in July. You can see the full list of dates on the tour page. They’ve added a few additional dates in September with no word of a more proper tour just yet. In fact, it looks like Wolf Parade will likely take a break after those September dates until 2017.
Speaking of Moonface, June 3rd was the release date for ‘My Best Human Face’ the second release with Finnish band Siinai. Congrats to Spencer and Siinai on another amazing record.
