New Wolf Parade

3 years in the making, and we finally have a light at the end of the indie rock tunnel. Wolf Parade's untitled sophomore release is slated for a June release on Subpop.

Indeed the first single has already been released...Call it a Ritual.

Wolf Parade - Call it a Ritual

Regardless the reason posts have been so few and far between is because I am in the middle of exams and Thom is preparing his art exhibit. We promise once this craziness dies down we will be back more frequently.
