Happy 10 Year Anniversary ‘Apologies To The Queen Mary’!

apologies-to-the-queen-mary

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Wolf Parade’s ‘Apologies To The Queen Mary’. This record has influenced and inspired a legion of fans. The ’12 Days of Apologies’ project was full of art, videos, covers, essays, all inspired by the 12 tracks that make up this brilliant record.

Thank you Arlen, Dan, Spencer, and Hadji for creating this record. Your music has been the soundtrack to my life, and for that I will forever be grateful.

Check the main anniversary page for quotes, short stories, art, and more all inspired by Apologies To The Queen Mary!!

10 years of Apologies #wolfparade

Justin Joffe from The NY Observer wrote this amazing piece about Apologies to the Queen Mary.

Stereogum did a nice write up about the 10 year anniversasry

If you haven’t read it already, read Brandon Stosuy’s amazaing review of Apologies from the Queen Mary from September 2005. my favorite line is “In a few years, other folks will still remember where they were when they first heard Apologies to the Queen Mary.”


Thank you Wayne Massingham for this:

“10 years ago this weekend an album was released that changed my life. Wolf Parade felt like they existed just for me. They were fully charged with emotion and their songs were epic productions of heart stopping grandeur. Guitars and drums and keyboards crashed in an unholy mess that was beyond thrilling. They had released some EPs that caught my attention. The first time I heard them I was hooked. Then they released their debut album. “Apologies to the Queen Mary” was born and in time it would become my favourite album of all time. It is near perfect. 12 songs of exploration, love, joy and passion. Two singers and songwriters, Dan and Spencer, that pushed and pulled each other to great heights. If a more perfect song has ever been recorded than “I’ll Believe in Anything” then I would like to meet it. I was lucky enough to see them twice in Canada in 2005 and in 2007. I will never forget them. They released two more albums of impeccable quality and then went their separate ways. I will never forget them and I will always have their perfect first album living deep inside my heart.”
