Wolf Parade’s thunderous Cry Cry Cry will be available on CD / 2xLP / DL / CS worldwide from Sub Pop on Friday, October 6th, 2017. The album will be available in Canada from Universal Music.
The soaring choruses, rousing anthems, sprawling guitars and chaotic keys that make up Wolf Parade are proudly on display over the course of Cry Cry Cry. These elements are captured on the album’s anthemic lead single “Valley Boy”.
Of “Valley Boy,” Uproxx raved and called it “an exuberant new song.” Brooklyn Vegan adds, “It’s got not one but two of those classic singalong Krug hooks (the chorus and the “the radio’s been playing all your songs” line, a line Krug says about the late Leonard Cohen). As these live shows have been reminding us, Wolf Parade are not just great pop songwriters but they really know how to let loose as musicians, and the jammy instrumental bridge of “Valley Boy” is a fine example of that.” Meanwhile, Stereogumcalls “Valley Boy” “a grand, searching, theatrical rocker.” And Paste offers this, “[It] exemplifies Wolf Parade’s unique combination of energetic, textural sounds with complex, emotional lyrics and—if anything—proves the band is definitely back and ready to make up for lost time.”
Cry Cry Cry was produced by John Goodmanson at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in New York.
Cry Cry Cry is now available for pre-order worldwide from Sub Pop [link here], in Canada from Universal Records [link here] and Wolf Parade’s webstore [link here]. LP pre-orders through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers in the U.S. will receive the limited loser edition on creme colored vinyl (while supplies last). A new t-shirt design will also be available.
