Wolf Parade (CAN)

Support: FRIGS (CAN)

After seven years away, the Canadian indie outfit are back with their fourth album «Cry Cry Cry». The Bowie-esque single «Valley Boy» was written by Spencer following Leonard Cohen‘s death on the day before the 2016 US election. «You’re Dreaming», which draws on the power pop style of Tom Petty, deals with the shock that followed the election. The synth-heavy sound of «Artificial Life» takes a look at the struggle of artists. This sounds like the sort of thing on which the band made its name and we cannot wait to welcome Wolf Parade back to Kaserne Basel!
