The indie rock combo Wolf Parade formed in Montreal, where the band's first show saw them opening for Arcade Fire. Bandmates Dan Boeckner, Spencer Krug, Hadji Bakara, and Arlen Thompson eventually gained the attention of songwriter Isaac Brock, who doubled as the frontman of Modest Mouse and an A&R rep for Sub Pop Records. Brock helped the band secure a deal with Sub Pop while serving as a stylistic touchstone for Wolf Parade's unique sound, which merged indie rock with post-punk. Their debut full-length, Apologies to the Queen Mary, came out in September 2005. It was one of the fall's most anticipated releases. Wolf Parade issued their sophomore record, At Mount Zoomer, in June 2008. Emphasizing the distinct songwriting personalities of frontmen Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner, the album received great reviews and just narrowly missed the Top 40. By the end of the following year, Wolf Parade had already begun working on a third record. Their most recent release Expo 86 appeared in mid-2010 and has taken up where the last effort left off.
