Exclaim is reporting that a new Wolf Parade should expected on June 29 on Sub Pop. What’s even more exciting is that the band recorded 15 songs and over 80 minutes of music. Dan Boeckner is on record as saying that the band would consider an LP plus EP set of releases or . . . wait for it . . . a double album. The album was recorded live (with “zero” overdubs) and consists of “a few songs that are really, really intensely keyboard-heavy” and some songs that are “heavy ’80s coke rock.” Considering that the band promised a prog-rock spectacle with At Mount Zoomer, we should probably take his word for it on this one. The band also expects to release a 7” single ahead of the new album. And if you needed more good news from the camp, Boeckner also said that he and wife Alexei Perry are going to be writing songs for the next Handsome Furs record tentatively planned for next spring.
