Parquet Courts Announce US Tour & Share New Track

Parquet Courts are headin’ down south to the Mecca of tacos, Austin, TX, for a flurry of shows at this year’s SXSW festival. After that, they’re heading overseas to the UK for their first-ever shows outside of North America (if the NME’s 9/10 review of Light Up Gold is any indicator of people’s excitement over there, the shows should be pure madness). Following a little time off, the band will embark on their largest tour of the US yet, part of which will see them sharing the stage with killer Australian outfit Total Control. Dates are listed below.

Over the past 3 months, people have been discovering Parquet Courts’ Light Up Gold, and very quickly anointing it their favorite record of the year. They’re not alone, as The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, SPIN, NPR Music, The Guardian, Sound Opinions, and countless other publications and programs have joined choir. In short, this is one of those game-changing rock n’ roll records that people realize they’ll be listening to years from now. File it next to Modern Lovers and Marquee Moon, because Light Up Gold is here to stay. It’s out now on What’s Your Rupture?.

With the record being initially available since June, and with the wider release coming in January, people are understandably chomping at the bit for new music from the band. Well, wait not more. Here’s a b-side off their upcoming single for “Borrowed Time,” (What’s Your Rupture?) entitled “Smart Aleck Kid.” Revel in all one-minute-six-seconds of its glory.
