Canadian combo Wolf Parade were formed in 2003 in Montreal by Dan Boeckner (Handsome Furs), Spencer Krug (Sunset Rubdown), Dante DeCaro, and Arlen Thompson. On the strength of two self-released EPs, they gained the attention of Modest Mouse songwriter Isaac Brock, at that time working as an A&R rep for Sub Pop Records, who released their 2005 debut full-length, Apologies to the Queen Mary. 2008’s At Mount Zoomer was a more expansive record with a more cohesive and collaborative sound. The band recently announced their third record, Expo 86, to be released this summer.
