Wolf Parade

TSM represents Wolf Parade licensing/sync rights for: North America

Artist Description: The indie rock combo Wolf Parade formed in 2003 in Montreal, where the band's first show saw them opening for Arcade Fire. From there, the band recorded and self-released a four-song EP, followed by a six-song recording in 2004. They eventually gained the attention of songwriter Isaac Brock, who doubled as the frontman of Modest Mouse and an A&R rep for Sub Pop Records. Brock helped the band secure a deal with Sub Pop while serving as a stylistic touchstone for Wolf Parade's emerging sound, which merged indie rock with post-punk.

In July 2005, the quartet issued a self-titled EP on the label by way of introduction; the band's debut full-length, "Apologies to the Queen Mary", followed in September. It was one of the fall's most anticipated releases, and has since been praised as the standout indie record of 2005. Wolf Parade issued their sophomore record, "At Mount Zoomer", in June 2008. Emphasizing the distinct songwriting personalities of frontmen Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner, the album received warm reviews and just narrowly missed the Top 40. By the end of the following year, Wolf Parade had already begun working on a third record, and "Expo 86" appeared in mid-2010.

After a six year hiatus, bandmembers Dan Boeckner, Spencer Krug, Arlen Thompson, and Dante DeCaro reunited in a satisfyingly organic way, creating together again releasing "EP 4" in 2016. Fast forward to 2020, Thin Mind marks a return to the original power trio of Dan, Spencer, and Arlen, following multi-instrumentalist Dante DeCaro’s amicable departure from the group in 2018, after the conclusion of their world tour supporting Cry Cry Cry. One month later, the trio got together at Risqué Disque, an old stone barn-turned-studio in the woods of Vancouver Island, to begin writing Thin Mind—emerging with an album about making sense of the present while reckoning with visions of the future.
