Operators touring, playing Schubas w/ Tweens (dates, song stream)

Operators @ BV Northside 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Operators is the latest endeavor of Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits), featuring drummer Sam Brown (Divine Fits, New Bomb Turks) and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Devojka. The trio have been prepping their debut album, and just recently shared the LP’s lead single “True”. Operators deal in expertly-crafted, dance floor-ready synth pop that’s right along the lines of Boeckner’s work in Handsome Furs. And much like all other Boeckner projects live, Operators also bring it. You can take a listen to “True” at the bottom of this post.

Operators will fittingly be touring with Future Islands throughout August/September. During that run, the trio will break off for a headlining show of their own at Schubas on August 30. Support will come from Cincinnati garage-pop outfit Tweens, and advance tickets are on sale now.

All known Operators dates and a stream of “True” lie after the jump…
