    Parquet Courts are back with their first new music since 2018. The Brooklyn post-punks have announced their latest single “Plant Life”, which is only available on their new “Plant Life” 12-inch. In addition, they’ve mapped out a string of US tour dates for 2021.

    “‘Plant Life’ the song is my story of rediscovering my passion for music through New York City dance floors,” vocalist/guitarist Austin Brown said in a statement. “It’s a distillation from a 40 plus minute improvisation prompted by producer Rodaidh McDonald, and every way we’ve sliced it up illustrates a different mood of the same perspective of ecstasy and aspiration to not only grow, but form roots outside of our own barriers.”

    The “Plant Life” 12-inch, which also includes two remixes of the song, is available to purchase now through Rough Trade Records or through Parquet Courts’ website. It follows their 2018 breakthrough album, Wide Awake. Watch a brief teaser video below.


    Tickets to Parquet Courts’ tour go on sale Wednesday, June 30th at 9:00 a.m. EST. You can grab your tickets through Ticketmaster or on the secondary market here. See the schedule, which includes a date at Red Rocks with Portugal. The Man, below.
