Enter to win Operators' Radiant Dawn (out May 17 via Last Gang Records) on limited gold vinyl and a pair of tickets to see them in Western Canada this spring.
The group is still led by Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner, though this time around the use of "raw analog hardware" has resulted in a "1970s sci-fi dystopian feel," according to a press release. It also reveals the album was made in 2018 and early 2019, with sessions taking place in Montreal and Vancouver Island. It was co-produced with Boeckner's Wolf Parade bandmate Arlen Thompson, in addition to Montreal songwriter Napster Vertigo, and mastered by Grammy-winner Emily Lazar.
Their 27-date tour in support of the 14-track album focuses on on the west of North America, with the Canadian dates starting in Winnipeg and ending in Vancouver before continuing south. Though it swings back east toward the end, they don't cross the border back to hit our country's most common tour stops; who knows, maybe there are Toronto and Montreal dates in the pipeline.
