We totally found some rare Wolf Parade CDs–you know, the ones we gave away with the pre-order of Apologies to the Queen Mary–and we want to give them to anyone who orders anything Wolf Parade PLUS something else. That’s right: Order two (2) things, one must be Wolf Parade related and we’ll send you one of those cool cardbord jobbies that everyone is so wild about. Now’s the time to get that t-shirt you’ve been coveting…
