Parquet Courts has announced a new batch of tour dates for the winter in support of their new album, Wide Awake. After wrapping up the festival circuit, the band will head to Europe in November. The new dates range begin November 30th at Spirit in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and wrap up December 8th at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

In addition to the tour dates, the band posted a new music video for “Freebird II” on Apple Music. As with the rest of the album, the song features some melodic bass lines performed by Sean Yeaton.

“Andrew [Savage] and I started writing the record together while we were listening to a lot of Fela Kuti and other bass heavy stuff like the Wailers and the Upsetters as well as Brian Eno, who I’m obsessed with,” Yeaton told us in an interview. “We were just trying to find a way to give the bass a lot of room to explore so the guitars could have more freedom to go crazy.”
