Wolf Parade

The indie rock combo Wolf Parade formed in 2003 in Montreal, where the band's first show saw them opening for Arcade Fire. From there, bandmates Dan Boeckner, Spencer Krug, Hadji Bakara, and Arlen Thompson recorded and self-released a four-song EP, followed by a six-song recording in 2004. They eventually gained the attention of songwriter Isaac Brock, who doubled as the frontman of Modest Mouse and an A&R rep for Sub Pop Records. Brock helped the band secure a deal with Sub Pop while serving as a stylistic touchstone for Wolf Parade's emerging sound, which merged indie rock with post-punk.

In July 2005, the quartet issued a self-titled EP on the label by way of introduction; the band's debut full-length, Apologies to the Queen Mary, followed in September. It was one of the fall's most anticipated releases, recorded with Brock's help and released amid a critical flurry for such Canadian bands as Broken Social Scene, the Most Serene Republic, and Stars. After considering the title Kissing the Beehive for their follow-up (ultimately dismissed for fear of copyright infringement due to a Jonathan Carroll book by the same name), Wolf Parade issued their sophomore record, At Mount Zoomer, in June 2008. Emphasizing the distinct songwriting personalities of frontmen Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner, the album received warm reviews and just narrowly missed the Top 40. By the end of the following year, Wolf Parade had already begun working on a third record, and Expo 86 appeared in mid-2010. The following year saw the band go on an indefinite hiatus, with Krug devoting more time to his myriad other projects, which include Moonface, Sunset Rubdown, and Swan Lake. In 2016 the band announced that they would be reforming for a series of live dates, and had been working on new music. That same year the band released a deluxe version of their 2005 debut, Apologies to the Queen Mary, which included both of the their pre-Sub Pop, self-titled EPs. ~ Johnny Loftus

wow these guys have an awesome, distinct sound
Report as inappropriate
These guys define awesome band--they played their asses off in Little Rock, Arkansas, for f**k's sake, where they think Boston is still current. Best show ever, to a small crowd of music nerds and people who didn't know what they paid for, they deserve every credit they get. Two kickass albums will hopefully not be all from them. I'd pay to see them anywhere...

What a loser. It's a shame that we seem to have similar tastes in music...

I'm embarassed for you too.

I'm a little embarassed about how much I still rock out when I put on Apologies. I love the jagged dissonance and the-Darkness - m e e t s - N a t i v e - A m e r i c a n - w a i l i n g - s o n g vocals. I agree about the "similar bands."

how can you say sunset rubdown is great and wolf parade sucks? are your ears so attuned to subtlety that you differentiat e substantiall y between Spencer Krugs two projects, or does the relatively small difference in popularity so gall your snobby indie sensibility that you feel the need to disparage them? One springs from the other. maybe your sobriety has something to do with it.
oh well. I agree with so strange, innocence, and ghrahmo.

Probably my favorite artist right now

Mount zoomer is in my opinion not as good as Apologies. But I'm not saying it was bad.

I was instantly drawn to the expressive elements of Wolf Parade's vocals. Driving, spirited, call it what you will, the lead singer pounds out the lyrics with a hint of endangerment and abandon. Listen to the songs multiple times and you may find new aspects each time.

Yeah, they're great, but I'm very disappointed in pandora for the list of "similar bands." Spoon??? None of the bands listed captured the Montreal scene sound where plenty of bands have the electronic keyboard, pop-rythm sound of Wolf Parade.

saw this band play in portland, they sound even better live.

These dudes are cool

Similar artists? How about Frog Eyes?! Spencer Krug takes a lot with him musically from his former band.
