Operators heads out this week on their East Coast tour! With sold out shows in Toronto and New York, should be an incredible run of shows.
Wolf Parade have added a few more festival appearances to their upcoming touring schedule. Praying we get a full list of tour dates soon! Can’t wait for LP4 news as well!! Here’s a current list of Wolf Parade’s festival schedule:
Happy New Year everyone! My apologies for the delay in updates folks. I’ve been on tour since September and just now have a short break.
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!
01 “Love Like Thieves”
02 “On The Loose”
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.

Operators heads out on their massive European tour next week!
Bunch of news to report. First one being that Spencer has cancelled his Moonface tour for November. He posted a long message on his Facebook page that said :
“At first, they were supposed to be Moonface & Siinai shows, in support of My Best Human Face, but then: Flights! Logistics! Work visas for all those beautiful Finns!
It just wasn’t working…
So then, it was going to be a new idea altogether, a fresh take on some almost as fresh tunes, a sort of… surprise? But then: schedules, bands, boooring stuff…
That wasn’t going to work either.
So now, I’m postponing the whole run until next year. Shucks. Right now I’m thinking March / April, but I’m not positive on the dates yet, so anyone who already bought a ticket will be reimbursed.
And at this point I really don’t know what incarnation of Moonface will be on stage: with Siinai, or as the… surprise? Or something altogether different. I honestly can’t say.
For now, I’ll just say I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t think it was necessary. I hate doing it though. I do.”
So here’s hoping we get more dates next year.
In other news, Dan Boeckner has lent his vocals to a track on the new Preoccupations record. The 11 minute track titled ‘Memory’ features Dan at the 4:27 mark.
Our last bit of news has Operators adding two new dates, Barcelona and Lisbon. Here’s the most current list of dates for Operators upcoming European Tour:
