Parquet Courts announce tour in support of new album 'Wide Awake!'
Parquet Courts

Parquet Courts is back with new music ready to share. The band have announced their new album dubbed Wide Awake!, which drops May 18 via Rough Trade. They also shared the record's lead single "Almost Had to Start a Fight/In and Out of Patience." Check out the new lyric video above. Pre-order your copy of Wide Awake! here

For this effort, the band worked with Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse, who approached the band about collaborating. “I personally liked the fact that I was writing a record that indebted to punk and funk, and Brian’s a pop producer who’s made some very polished records. I liked that it didn’t make sense” said singer/guitarist A Savage in a press release

The band will also hit the road for their spring tour with labelmates Goat Girl as openers. Dates kick off April 24 in Houston, Texas and wrap up June 8 in Philadelphia, Pa. From there, they'll play overseas for various festival appearances, including Latitude Festival, Bilbao BBK, and Festival Beauregard. 

Just last year Parquet Courts released Milano, a collaborative album with composer Daniele Luppi. Prior to that, they released their fifth album, Human Performance, in 2016.
