Operators

Dan Boeckner has a busy year ahead. Not only are Wolf Parade coming out of hibernation, his other band Operators will release their debut album, Blue Wave, which will be out on April 1 via Last Gang. The new single is "Cold Light" which cribs a little from New Order and the Cure but is unmistakably a Boeckner original. Stream it below. They played four other songs off the album in their recent KEXP session, which you can watch here.

Operators' spring tour hits NYC on April 21 at Baby's All Right and tickets are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

Shortly after that tour, Dan will be back with Wolf Parade for five sold-out nights at Bowery Ballroom.
