SUB POP SIGNS WOLF PARADE

Not to be confused with another similarly-named recent signee to the label, we’re pleased as punch to introduce to you WOLF PARADE!!!!!!
“They’re newer than new!!!,” I say.
“But if they’re so new, how were they signed?,” you ask.Well, friend, I’ll tell ya! Victoria, BC’s now-defunct Atlas Strategic (the band that precursed Wolf Parade)didn’t last too long as a group, but they were around long enough to catch the ear of Isaac Brock, who was totally blown away by their songs’ strength. After AS supported Ugly Casanova’s west coast tour in 2K2, they disbanded and Dan (the band’s primary songcrafter) moved to Montreal, where Wolf Parade formed. And VOILA! They’re now a part of the Sub Pop family. We couldn’t be happier. Check our TOURS page to find out more information about their upcoming dates with Modest Mouse, and check the link below to listen to Wolf Parade on NewMusicCanada.com!
