First of all, a big thanks to everyone who helped us carry out the search for Austin Brown of Parquet Courts! We are happy to report that we found him wandering around New Orleans in a post-Mardi Gras party daze, wearing his “Wide Awake” purple suit and clutching some beads. The band played a terrific show at a dive bar that night, and Austin seems back to his old self now. Watch the whole episode unfold in the video for the band’s brand new track “Mardi Gras Beads”

“Mardi Gras Beads” is the first Austin Brown-penned track to be revealed thus far from Parquet Courts‘ new album “Wide Awake!” (out 18th May). He describes it as “a song about commitment to yourself, for better or worse”.  Maybe some of you heard it early by bagging a copy of it b/w “Seems Kind of Silly” on 7″ at Record Store Day

From Parquet Courts‘ album ‘Wide Awake!’, out 18th May on Rough Trade Records
