Brooklyn rockers Parquet Courts have announced their fifth LP Wide Awake!. The album, which will be out May 18 on Rough Trade Records, was produced by Danger Mouse. Regarding the collaboration, co-frontman A. Savage said "I was writing a record that indebted to punk and funk, and Brian’s a pop producer who’s made some very polished records. I liked that it didn’t make sense."
The record will thematically deal with "coping and confrontation" in the current political climate. Parquet Courts have also released an animated video for the split first single, “Almost Had To Start A Fight/In And Out Of Patience,” which adequately matches the track's jolty and neurotic vibe.
