Boeckner!, the Debut Solo Outing From Dan Boeckner, Is Available Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Friday, March 15th, marks the release of Boeckner!, the self-titled full-length debut and solo outing from Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Operators, Divine Fits). Today, he is sharing the Poltergeist-meets-Beetlejuice-inspired official video for “Dead Tourists,” an album standout co-written by Jeremy Gaudet of labelmates Kiwi Jr. The nightmarish video was directed by Sasha Solodukhina, and stars Boeckner as a ghostly character haunted by an array of unfortunate souls.
Boeckner! is an eight-song, thirty-two-minute collection featuring the highlights “Lose,” “Euphoria,” and “Dead Tourists,” and was produced, engineered, and mixed by Randall Dunn at Circular Ruin in New York City and mastered by Heba Kadry in Brooklyn, New York.
Boeckner’s international touring in support of the album begins with a west coast leg on April 24th in Los Angeles, CA, at The Lodge Room and runs through Thursday, June 27th, with a just-announced headline show in London, UK at Oslo. 
Boeckner will perform material from the new album and highlights from Operators, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits, and Wolf Parade catalogs. The band lineup for all North American dates will include Sam Brown (Operators, Divine Fits, New Bomb Turks) on drums, Alex Fischel (Spoon, Divine Fits) on keys, and Brad Laner (Medicine, Savage Republic) on guitar.
