This just in from Peter Pisano, lead singer of Peter Wolf Crier: The up-and-coming local duo have just been signed to Jagjaguwar (also home of Eau Claire breakout Bon Iver and the new regional supergroup Gayngs), who will re-release their debut, Inter-Be, internationally on both vinyl and CD on May 25. It should give the band a nice push as Pisano and drummer Brian Moen head down to South by Southwest later this month, where they are set to play two official showcases and at least three other shows at the industry-heavy festival.
As a side note, this is also exciting news for photographer and Gimme Noise contributor Stacy Schwartz, who shot the album cover art. Congrats to Stacy and to the band, this is huge news!
We're expecting an official release from Jagjaguwar later today, and will post more information about the release at that time. (UPDATE: There's more info on the Jagjaguwar site.)
