New Sunset Rubdown album on the way!

The boys of Wolf Parade have been quite busy as of late, with Dan Boeckner's Handsome Furs releasing their second disc and Spencer Krug working with indie supergroup Swan Lake on last month's Enemy Mine. Oh, and we shouldn't forget WP's excellent sophomore album, At Mount Zoomer, that we were graced with last year. Apparently it's not enough for the uber-prolific Krug, who's other project, Sunset Rubdown, will be unveiling their third album (second on the Jagjaguar label) on June 23rd.

The album marks the debut of bassist/drummer Mark Nicol who will be joining the lineup of Jordan Robson-Cramer on drums, guitar and keys, Michael Doerksen on guitar and bass, and Camilla Wynne Ingr on keys and percussion and vocals. The record is titled Dragonslayer, and the gloriously weird album art is what you see above.
