After a half-decade hiatus, Wolf Parade is getting back together. But there’s much more to get excited over than a chance to sing along to “Shine a Light” when the band hits the road next month. Co-frontman Dan Boeckner stopped by the Alt In Our Stars podcast to chat about Wolf Parade, his new band Operators, and how he endured years of dead-end jobs to forge a full-time life in music.
The Wolf Parade reunion begins May 17 with a five-show residency at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. Boeckner says the band plans to “pepper the set with new stuff,” some of which has already been recorded. “If I was gonna guess when new stuff is coming out I would say it’s definitely probably gonna be around these Bowery Shows. That would make the most sense.”
