Parquet Courts have announced a new record due out this June. Sunbathing Animal is the band’s third full-length and hits stores June 3. The band’s previous LP, Light Up Gold, wowed critics and audiences alike when it was reissued by What’s Your Rupture? last year, with ripping tracks like “Borrowed Time” still popping up on new episodes of TV shows even now. Sunbathing Animal’s first single, the title track, is below.


The band spent much of last year touring, and has a number of North American and European tour dates on the immediate horizon. Those are listed below, as is the tracklisting for Sunbathing Animal.
