NYC-based art punk/indie rock band Parquet Courts have just announced that their sixth studio album is headed out way this year. The new album, titled Wide Awake!, drops May 18 via Rough Trade.
The new album looks to be a continuation of the jagged, experimental punk sound the band are known for while also hosting a new twist on it. The twist comes in the form of the producer of the record, who is none other than the Danger Mouse.
The album announcement comes with the release of the first single “Almost Had To Start A Fight / In And Out Of Patience.” Check out the lyric video for the single right below this, and then give a look at the album art and tracklist.
