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!
