Dante-Decaro_KYB-EP_1080-72-300x300

Let’s start with Dante Decaro releasing ‘Kill Your Boyfriend’ EP on Last Gang Records. So great to have Dante back making music on his own. For those of you that listened to Johnny and the Moon, this is a step in a new direction for Dante. Really love the added synths and instrumentation. Excited for what comes next!

Tracklist:
01 “Love Like Thieves”
02 “On The Loose”
03 “Rwanda”
04 “Rachel”
05 “Kill Your Boyfriend”

Operators are set to play Primavera Sound festival! May 31st-June 4th. No word yet on which day/stage they’ll be on. Here’s hoping they’ll be more tour dates!

Wolf Parade have been keeping us up todate on social media with the progress of LP4! If you aren’t doing it already, you should follow them on Instagram.

NOISEFLOOR

Here’s a photo from their recent trip to Gabriola Island, BC to record vocals. Prior to this the band was in several other studios including Robert Lang Studios in Seattle and prepping at Tiger Mountain Studio in BC.

There is no set date for release of the record yet, however the band are playing 3 shows in February in BC:

02.23 & 24 – Imperial – Vancouver 
02.25 – Sugar Nightclub – Victoria 

These will be the very first shows for the brand new songs to be heard. Super jealous of anyone going. Hope we get some news of a release date soon.

A few months of news..

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.

Oh and somewhere in there they performed on Late Nite with Stephen Colbert and on CBC Radio Q

Then the festival dates began with Northside Festival in Brooklyn, and then the band headed to London for their 2 sold out shows at The Scala.

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.

Some interviews with Dan or Spencer from the last few months:
The Skinny
Noisey
