Marching in the Wolf Parade

It's a Wolf Parade bonanza!  These guys have been quiet for way too long - so all this new press is a real treat.

First off - download two new tracks here.

And how much fun does this new album sound?

Wolf Parade Shed Some Hats to Focus on New Album - Spinner:

When it came time to make a new record, Montreal's Wolf Parade decided to do it the old-fashioned way.

'We wanted to be a band in the room together and just make a record like we did it years ago,' drummer Arlen Thompson tells Spinner on the phone from his Mile End apartment, his baby daughter cooing in the background. While Thompson did double-duty as producer of the foursome's sophomore album, 2008's 'At Mount Zoomer,' and their debut, 'Apologies to the Queen Mary,' -- which was 'recorded in pieces and put together at the end' -- the upcoming 'Expo 86' (due June 29 on Sub Pop) sees the band getting back to basics.

'We started with nothing and came into the room together for the first time in a year, since the last showed we played, and we worked really hard on it every day for three months,' says Thompson, who's pleased with the new songs and arrangements. 'For myself, on the last record I did a lot of the engineering. It's fun, but I didn't want to wear both hats again. I wanted to focus on the playing and performance aspects.'"

Wolf Parade will be at the Beachland on Thursday, June 15th. Get your tickets ASAP.

Their new album, Expo 86 will be out on June 29th.  Pre-order it at Insound.
