Parquet Courts stream “Human Performance”

Parquet Courts stream title-track their new release 'Human Performance'

Parquet Courts release their forthcoming release Human Performance, this Friday via Rough Trade Records. Today, the band has shared the title track from the record, in advance of it’s release.

Ultimately the song is about living in the company of one’s own shame. Perhaps it was the years spent as an altar boy that gave me an inclination toward repentance and atonement. I’ve never been a believer, but I can understand the appeal of faith, especially when it includes the promise of unconditional love and forgiveness. Human Performance is about the absence of that faith, and how haunting it is.

Parquet Courts are about to embark on a tour in support of Human Performance, starting off with a surprise (and already sold out) day-of-release show at Brooklyn’s Bell House. Don’t miss the opportunity to see these singular humans perform.
