Published Nov 13, 2008With that whole Wolf Parade record now out of the way, the art-rockin Montrealers can finally get back to what they love best: their side-projects. Up first, Wolf Parader Dan Boeckner, whos set to release his Handsome Furs sophomore effort early next year.
Titled Face Control, Handsome Furs follow-up to 2007s Plague Park is due out February 3 courtesy of Sub Pop. Like the first record, Boeckner wrote the new album alongside his belle Alexei Perry, and this time enlisted Wolf Parade drummer Arlen Thompson to record and mix the album at Mount Zoomer studio in Montreal. Harris Newman then mastered Face Control at the famed Hotel2Tango.
