Sub Pop to reissue first Wolf Parade album

Sub Pop to reissue Wolf Parade first album 'Apologies to the Queen Mary' (Deluxe Edition)

Sub Pop has announced the reissue Wolf Parade’s Apologies to the Queen Mary: Deluxe Edition, the band’s debut album, which will be available worldwide on 3xLP/DL May 13th. The reissue features the original album, now as a double LP, along with the band’s pre-Sub Pop, self-titled EPs (released in 2003 and 2004), both of which are making their vinyl debut. The package features new artwork and includes the previously unreleased track “Snakes on the Ladder” from the Apologies… sessions. The album was remastered for this release by the band’s longtime associate Harris Newman at Grey Market Mastering. The reissue of Apologies to the Queen Mary: Deluxe Edition comes on the heels of Wolf Parade’s recently-announced 2016 reunion tour.

Wolf Parade — Spencer Krug, Dan Boeckner, Arlen Thompson, and Dante DeCaro — formed in Montreal in 2003. After the aforementioned self-titled EPs, the group released Apologies to the Queen Mary to much acclaim in September 2005, on Sub Pop. The album was recorded by Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock and engineer Chris Chandler at Audible Alchemy in Portland, Oregon. The album was an entirely collaborative effort, barreling headfirst and breathlessly through songs written during Wolf Parade’s early years together as a band.
