Parquet Courts Announce New Album, Drop "Almost Had To Start A Fight / In And Out Of Patience" New Video

Brooklyn based indie rock band Parquet Courts have announced the release of their fifth studio album titled 'Wide Awake!'.

The follow-up to 2016's Human Performance, will be out 18th May on Rough Trade Records, and was produced by Danger Mouse. “I personally liked the fact that I was writing a record that indebted to punk and funk, and [Danger Mouse]’s a pop producer who’s made some very polished records,” Savage said in a press release. “I liked that it didn’t make sense.”

The songs, written by Andrew Savage and Austin Brown but elevated to even greater heights by the dynamic rhythmic propulsion of Max Savage (drums) and Sean Yeaton (bass), are filled with their traditional punk rock passion, as well as a lyrical tenderness. The record reflects a burgeoning confidence in the band's exploration of new ideas in a hi-fi context.
