The soaring choruses, rousing anthems, sprawling guitars, and chaotic keys that make up Wolf Parade are on proud display over the course of Cry Cry Cry, the band's thunderous first album in seven years. Spearheaded by electric co-frontmen Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner, that unique combination of glam, prog, synth-rock, and satisfying discomfort that is Wolf Parade also helped define 2000s indie rock. Over the course of three critically-celebrated albums, the band propelled a Wolf Parade fandom that grew even after the band went on a then-indefinite hiatus in 2010. Band members scattered geographically and focused on family and other work - Spencer on his solo project Moonface, Dan on his bands Handsome Furs, Operators, and Divine Fits (with Spoon's Britt Daniel), and Dante De Caro on records with Carey Mercer's Frog Eyes and Blackout Beach. And that time apart allowed for an even stronger, tighter band to emerge. Cry Cry Cry marks Wolf Parade's return, with a renewed focus and the mature creativity of a band that took their time getting exactly where they needed to be.
