sub pop reissue wolf parade’s acclaimed first album ‘apologies to the queen mary’ – featuring the original album, now as a much-better-sounding 2 lp, along with the band’s pre-sub pop, self-titled eps (released in 2003 and 2004), both of which are making their vinyl debut.
the package also includes the previously unreleased track “snakes on the ladder” from the apologies sessions. the album was remastered for this release by the band’s longtime associate harris newman at grey market mastering. wolf parade was founded in 2003 in montreal, quebec. after the aforementioned self-titled eps, the group released apologies to the queen mary to much acclaim in september, 2005, on sub pop. the album was recorded by modest mouse front-man isaac brock and engineer chris chandler at audible alchemy in portland, oregon. the album was an entirely collaborative effort, barreling headfirst and breathlessly through songs written during wolf parade’s early years together as a band. pitchfork gave apologies to the queen mary a 9.2 rating, saying, “wolf parade’s true talent is transforming the everyday into the unprecedented.” and the guardian raved, “magnificent, all told.” the album has sold over 100,000 in the u.s. alone.
