At the end of 2010, Canadian indie rockers Wolf Parade announced they’d be going on an “indefinite hiatus.” The news came as a surprise to fans, especially considering the group had released their third album, Expo 86, just months prior.
Since putting Wolf Parade behind them, the band’s main members have gone on to release new music under various monikers and/or with new acts — Spencer Krug with Moonface, Sunset Rubdown, and Swan Lake; Dan Boeckner with Operators and Divine Fits.
However, nearly six years later, it looks like Wolf Parade are finally ready to regroup and return to the spotlight. As Stereogum points out, the band’s official website has been stripped down, and now displays two pieces of very, very important information: Wolf Parade 2016. Head here to see for yourself. Additionally, they’ve launched new Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Update – Friday, January 15th at 8:05 a.m. CT: In a statement, Wolf Parade confirmed they are working on new music. They’ve also announced upcoming residencies in New York, Toronto, and London.
Hey-o everyone, the hiatus is over!
We’re very excited to get back on stage together at these residency shows in NYC, Toronto, and London. We’ll be playing our favorites from from the old albums, of course, as well as a taste or two of some new tunes we’ve been writing. Hope to see you there! xo WP
