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.

Moonface cancels dates, Dan on new Preoccupations track, Operators add new dates to Euro Tour

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.
