Parquet Courts Announce RSD Single 'Sunbathing Animal' (19th April), UK/European Tour + SXSW Shows 04/03/14 in parquetcourts

It is with much excitement that Parquet Courts announce the release of a new single on Rough Trade – “Sunbathing Animal,” which is the A-side to the Record Store Day 7” and b-side “Pilgrims To Nowhere,” another new song. Now, much in the spirit of Parquet Courts, this single is somewhat “DIY.” It’s DIY in the respect that you have to be able to read sheet music in order to play it yourself. So, maybe “PIY?” Anyway, dig it.
