Mistletone is rapt to present the return of Parquet Courts, with special guests The Goon Sax who recently released their new album We’re Not Talking. Melbourne’s Primo! will open in Melbourne. The tour comes hot on the heels of their Wide Awake remixes EP featuring two remixes by Mikey Young (Eddy Current, Total Control, etc) ‘Wide Awake (Club Mix)’ and ‘Normalization (Collective Witnessing Mix)’ and a ‘Wide Awake edit’ by legendary NYC DJ, Danny Krivit (listen / stream here).


“Parquet Courts are one of the best bands in the world right now, and records like Wide Awake! are a welcome reminder that they have no shortage of ideas to ensure they keep their standards high.”– Double J

“Joyfully absurd, danceable rock music. It is straightforward but alien, simple but endlessly referential.” – Pitchfork, 8.0

“‘Wide Awake!’ is an indelible underlining of their status as one of the most important bands in the world right now.”NME ★★★★

This will be Parquet Courts’ first visit to Australia off the back of their 2018 critically acclaimed album Wide Awake! (out now via Remote Control). The record is a groundbreaking work for the band, an album about independence and individuality but also about collectivity and communitarianism. There’s also a freshness here, a breaking of new territory that’s a testament to the group’s restless spirit. Part of this could be attributed to the fact that ‘Wide Awake!’ was produced by Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse.
