A new interview with Spencer Krug came out today via Pitchfork. In it Spencer talks about the reuniting of Wolf Parade as well as the releasing of new music under his Moonface moniker. It looks like we’ll have a Moonface with Siinai record sometime this summer! And Spencer also mentions he’s recorded the next solo Moonface record as well!
Also announced today, Moonface will be doing a one off show in Chicago at Lincoln Hall on April 17th. Tickets are on sale now. No word if Spencer plans to add more Moonface shows before the Wolf Parade residencies in May.
There had been some rumors that Spencer had recorded a new record with Siinai before leaving Helsinki and now we have proof! Excited to hear the follow up to their incredible first collaboration, Heartbreaking Bravery.
It’s also looking like Operators will have their debut new record out next year as well! 2016 is going to be amazing!
Spencer just posted on his Moonface Facebook page that he’ll be performing a benefit show in Vancouver on Friday July 17th along with Frog Eyes. All profits will be going to a friend who is in need.
The lineup: THE ANNUNAKI (improv noise) MOONFACE (me solo on keyboards, some brand new songs, some old stubborn songs) and FROG EYES (rock ‘n’ roll?) Acts will play in that order, if all goes to plan.
The venue: The China Cloud, Vancouver
The time: Friday July 17, doors at 8pm, music to start around 9pm
Frog Eyes just shared the video for ‘Joe with the Jam’, the lead track off their new record Pickpocket’s Locket out August 28th on Paper Bag Records. Get it on limited edition blue & white vinyl (w/ bonus demo cassette!) or CD!
