Operators Press 'EP1' on Vinyl

Operators Press 'EP1' on Vinyl
Last summer, Dan Boeckner's new band Operators issued EP1 digitally and on cassette. Now, that debut release has got a vinyl pressing through Last Gang Records.

The five-song EP comes on a snazzy-looking red and black split-colour vinyl platter. It's available here for $16 online and hits physical shops on Tuesday (January 13). A tweet from the group also indicates that it's also available at shows. Read our prior review of EP1 right here. The material contained here sounds a whole lot more like Boeckner's synth-heavy work with Handsome Furs or Divine Fits than his rock-centric material with Wolf Parade.

Below, see the tracklist, plus Operators' tour schedule. They will be playing Canadian dates in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, London, Guelph and Hamilton. Many of the dates are with the New Pornographers.
