After the release of their much-loved 2018 LP 'Wide Awake!', Parquet Courts have now announced their plans for their new studio album 'Sympathy For Life', which is set to be released on the 22nd October via Rough Trade Records.

The new full-length is being previewed by the new lead single 'Walking At A Downtown Pace'.

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."
