Handsome Furs was a Montreal-based indie rock duo which consisted of Dan Boeckner, of Wolf Parade and Atlas Strategic, and his now ex-wife, Alexei Perry. Handsome Furs signed on to Sub Pop Records in late 2006, and released their first full-length album, Plague Park, in 2007. “Handsome Furs” was the title of a short story that Alexei was writing at the time of the band’s conception. The band announced its breakup on May 17, 2012 via Facebook.
