Wolf Parade have added 2 more shows to their list of upcoming events. The first is at the Ponderosa Festival in Rock Creek, BC and the second is a solitary club show at The Crowfoot Ballroom in Pontiac, MI. Here’s hoping that this show is part of a longer list of club shows set to promote LP4!
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.
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:
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.
Speaking of Moonface, June 3rd was the release date for ‘My Best Human Face’ the second release with Finnish band Siinai. Congrats to Spencer and Siinai on another amazing record. You can purchase the new record as well as read a long journal post from Spencer about the record here. You can watch the video for ‘Risto’s Riff’ here.
Moonface and Siinai are performing a small set of dates starting tomorrow in Berlin. Check the tour page for full list of dates.
Operators have been long listed for this year’s Polaris Music Prize! Congrats to them!! The short list will be announced on July 14th!
Check out this full video stream from their performance for KEXP from this past April:
They’ve also added some festival dates this summer and fall including Camp Wavelength in Ontario on August 19th and Rifflandia on Vancouver Island on September 17th.
Tomorrow is the first of the 5 night residency at Bowery Ballroom in NYC! Some tickets were released on Ticketmaster today. I’ve also been tweeting for friends and fans who have tickets to sell. If you still need a ticket there is also sometimes a chance that Bowery will release tickets at the door.
I’ll be at all 5 shows in NYC and I promise a full report at the end of the week! In the meantime follow me on twitter and instagram.
