[tour dates] Wolf Parade (new album?); Spoon (in Australia)

Wolf Parade & Spoon Announce new tour dates

Via the WP Fansite, it appears that Canada's hardest working band will be playing a handful of gigs - one in North America and a few in Europe (so far). This news hints/supports rumors that Wolf Parade has been working on a new record. Perhaps we'll get to hear a few new songs road-tested in the coming months. In a perfect world, maybe we'd finally get to see a studio cut of "Things I Don't Know" (that would be too perfect)... Dates are posted below:
