Vancouver Island band Wolf Parade will release their fourth album, Cry, Cry, Cry on October 6th (Sub Pop).

The band members were scattered around working on other projects after 2010’s Expo 86.

Most the band members eventually found themselves back on Vancouver Island again with Dan Boeckner in Northern California.  I guess the guys felt the time was right to put the band back together.

“Expo was a real rock record. We just sort of banged it out, which was kind of the point.” Cry Cry Cry, on the other hand, is more deliberate in its arrangements and embrace of the studio process. “If a part was going on for too long it would get lopped, you know?” says Dan. “That being said, there are two very long songs on the record and I don’t think it would be a Wolf Parade record if it didn’t have some kind of prog epic.”

The band shared the song “Valley Boy” to get us excited for the October album.
