Expo 86, the third from our favorite (sometimes) drunken rock band, comes out late June or early July on Sub Pop. The boys have come a long way from their days of lapsed sobriety (during their early tours) to a place of excellent performing, especially on their second record At Mount Zoomer. Dan Boeckner, also of side project The Handsome Furs, recently discussed the new record with Pitchfork. A lot of the songs were done "live to tape", giving the record a more natural feeling. Boeckner and Spencer Krug (the other co-leader of the group) once again share writing responsibilities, this time a more amicable and productive venture than the past, it would seem. He called it "definitely the most fun I've had recording a Wolf Parade record." He also called it their "most focused" album to date. A cool side note: Expo 86 is named for the fair of the same name, a World's Fair that was held in Vancouver in 1986. It's an event that has been discussed by the band as a universally fond memory, and thus bonding element for the group. Hopefully no one sues. Stay tuned for more details.-joe
