Dan Boeckner (Operators)

Dan Boeckner (Operators)


Canadian guitarist and vocalist Dan Boeckner is a man who doesn’t like sitting still for too long. He’s been a part of four different indie bands since 2000 (Wolf Parade, Divine Fits, Handsome Furs, Atlas Strategic) and has totaled 12 releases between those projects during that time.
 
Well, it doesn’t seem like he’s getting ready to settle down any time soon. His fifth project, Operators, is set to debut next Tuesday. It’s certainly the most electronic and dancy work we’ve seen from Boeckner to date, and it’s already gained some traction via some well-placed and well-played live gigs in the last few months. The first EP will be called EP1 which possibly means that he plans on sticking with the project for a few more releases at some point in the future. For now, Boeckner gets ready to tour the U.S. with Future Islands, taking along a crack live band that will include his fellow Divine Fits (as well as New Bomb Turks) drummer, Sam Brown.
