Parquet Courts will release their new album, Wide Awake!, on Friday, May 18, via Rough Trade. The quartet are touring to promote the new album with a show at 9:30 Club on Thursday, June 7. And you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC!
Brother Willis directed the video for the title track of the new album, which was filmed in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. The video features the band, clad in purple tuxedos, being “wide awake.”
“I was very intrigued by the band’s idea to spend a few days filming all around New Orleans during Mardi Gras,” said Brother Willis. “Probably should’ve thought twice about it, but we all came out the other side changed people and with a video (or more?) in our collective pocket.”
