Wolf Parade Announce New Album, Expo 86 + European/North American Summer Tour

Montreal's Wolf Parade's first album, 2005's Apologies to the Queen Mary, was a gem of quirky indie-pop. The band then avoided and moved way beyond the dreaded sophomore slump with 2008's expansive and exhilarating At Mount Zoomer. So I've got high hopes for the just-announced third record, Expo 86, to be released on Sub Pop in late June or early July. In an interview with Pitchfork, front man Dan Boeckner said:

There's a lot more uptempo stuff on it than there was in the last record. But it's really dense. All the songs and arrangements are really, really dense. And it sounds like a band playing live. Parts of it are pretty noisy, too, which I'm pretty happy with...I think this one is a little more faithful to the main aesthetic behind Wolf Parade.
Wolf Parade will embark on a summer tour following Expo 86's release, including a July 26 stop at the Showbox.
