Parquet Courts have officially announced a brand new album, ‘Sympathy For Life’.
The full-length was first mentioned back in June on Dr Rob’s Remedy radio show, but now has a release date of 22nd October, and a first teaser track in the form of opening song ‘Walking At A Downtown Pace’.
Co-frontman Austin Brown explains: “[Previous album] 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,” Brown continues. “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.”
