Parquet Courts announce new album 'Sympathy For Life'

Following on from the release of their much-loved 2018 LP 'Wide Awake!', Parquet Courts have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Sympathy For Life' will include the new lead single 'Walking At A Downtown Pace', and is set to be released on the 22nd October via Rough Trade Records.

Speaking about the new release, co-frontman Austin Brown said "Wide Awake! was a record you could put on at a party. Sympathy For Life is influenced by the party itself.

"Most of the songs were created by taking long improvisations and moulding them through our own editing. The biggest asset we have as artists is the band. After 10 years together, our greatest instrument is each other. The purest expression of Parquet Courts is when we are improvising."
