RIYL: Handsome Furs, Moonface, Frog Eyes

Label: Sub Pop

Wolf Parade was really going strong beck in the late 2000s. Their run dried up in 2010 after the release of Expo 86 and besides a quite EP in 2016 we haven’t really heard much since: until now. Cry Cry Cry, their first full length album in seven years, is being released in october with pre-orders over at Sub Pop happening now! Their single “Valley Boy” has all the anthem driven sounds that Wolf Parade is known for, with Dan Boeckner’s signature quivering vocals. Cry Cry Cry is like all of their albums in that:

“All of our albums are always a reaction to our last one,” says Arlen, “Expo 86 was about as sparse as we get, which is usually still pretty dense, and this time we wanted to make the palette a little larger.” Adds Dante, “Expo was a real rock record. We just sort of banged it out, which was kind of the point.” Cry Cry Cry, on the other hand, is more deliberate in its arrangements and embrace of the studio process. “If a part was going on for too long it would get lopped, you know?” says Dan. “That being said, there are two very long songs on the record and I don’t think it would be a Wolf Parade record if it didn’t have some kind of prog epic.”

We have a couple of options below:

As per Dave from the webstore, the red transparent is “limited edition” but they don’t know the quantity of the pressing. They also do not know if the Cream “Loser” edition is the same as the White “Loser” edition. He was unable to confirm this. Also, it looks like the signed copies for the red version are confirmed gone. I don’t know about the white version.
