PARQUET COURTS – ” Black Widow Spider “

Posted: September 23, 2021 in MUSIC

Parquet Courts have shared a music video for their new song “Black Widow Spider.” It’s the latest single from their forthcoming album “Sympathy For Life”. They’ve also annonuced U.K. tour dates for 2022 with additional dates in North America and Europe. The track is the latest preview of the New York band’s new album ‘Sympathy For Life’, which will come out on October 22nd via Rough Trade Records.

So far, the band have shared lead single ‘Walking At A Downtown Pace’ and a physical-only single of the album track ‘Plant Life’. Check out the video for “Black Widow Spider” and the full list of tour dates below. The video for “Black Widow Spider” was directed and animated by Shayne Ehman. Of the track, Andrew Savage said in a statement:

I told [producer] Rodaidh McDonald that I wanted to find a sound that was equal parts Can, Canned Heat and This Heat. He was really into that and probably took some glee in having such a bizarre challenge.

Parquet Courts’ most recent album came in 2018 with ‘Wide Awake!’. Parquet Courts are a magical band that make you feel everything all at once: youth, nostalgia, happiness, desolation, flying high, running low. The record’s last line, then, is fitting, Savage calling for “the fix of a little tenderness”. But where would the thrill be in that?”

Earlier this year, Parquet Courts reissued their 2011 debut album “American Specialties”.

As always, Parquet Courts is back in town! Only this time the town is the world and over the next few weeks, there will be 11 surprise events taking place across the world. An event for every song on the forthcoming album! Some you will be able to attend, some you won’t, but all of which you’ll be able to learn more about here.
