Brooklyn post-punk act Parquet Courts have achieved great success thanks to their debut LP Light Up Gold and follow-up Tally All the Things That You Broke EP. It's now time to start thinking about new material, which they've teased with a new upcoming single.

Taking a page from Beck, the group have shared the sheet music for their upcoming single "Sunbathing Animal." The first bit of music is available above, and the rest can be found here.

"Sunbathing Animal" will arrive on Record Store Day as a 7-inch single, with "Pilgrims to Nowhere," another new song, available on the flipside.

In addition, the group have shared a hefty slate of tour dates, including Canadian stops in Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. Along the way, they'll play with great bands like Naomi Punk, Swearin', Radioactivity, Tyvek and more. Check out the full itinerary below.
