Parquet Courts has become one of the hottest new bands on the music scene. Their unique style
and stoner vibe has struck a chord with many fans around the country, and put them on the radar of many prestigious music
magazines. The group is fronted by songwriter and vocalist Andrew Savage of Fergus & Geronimo fame, and includes his brother
Max on drums, Austin Brown on guitar and Sean Yeaton on bass. The band saw their first breakthrough with their first full-length
album, Light Up Gold. It was issued on the Dull Tools label and became a huge hit with music fans. The single "Stoned and
Starving" has become their calling card and is the most requested at their live performances.
They are currently on
tour, promoting their latest album, and bringing their fans what they want most—to see them live, in person. Their latest
release, an EP entitled All the Thing That You Broke, has already made a huge impression on the world, and is the focus of
their tour. They will be making stops in Los Angeles and many other cities around the country. Don't miss your chance to see
them perform all of their greatest hits and latest tunes live.
Although many of the lyrics to Parquet
Courts' songs are a bit bizarre and hard to follow—for example "she looked at me like a fry pan reducing"—their
music is easy to listen. It draws the listener in with its fist pump-inducing beats and noisy guitar riffs, and envelops them
with an almost folksy storytelling aspect. From the busy streets of Brooklyn to the Texas desert, these musicians sing about
every life experience they've encountered in a way that's relatable and even humorous.
About the Artist
Savage, who fronts the band, found fame as a part of the band Fergus & Geronimo and the Texas-based band Teenage Cool
Kids. But, when the songwriter moved to Brooklyn, he wanted to start a band that represented his maturation in the music business
and the influences of his new home. He recruited his brother Max to play drums, guitarist Austin Brown and bassist Sean Yeaton.
Parquet Courts became an official group in 2011, and the band began to gain exposure after the release of their 2011 album,
American Specialties. It was released exclusively on cassette, which set the band apart from other bands of the day. It was
somewhat of a stunt that went over big with nostalgic fans.
The band's signature sound borrowed some of its noisy indie
rock from punk bands of the late 90s, but with a modern twist. Their chemistry was and still is something to behold, and they
rode that wave of talent and inspiration to Brooklyn where they began performing music from their first album and new music
they were steadily preparing to release in future albums. Their next album, Light Up Gold, caught the world's attention and
critics sung its praises. It was released through Dull Tools records in the summer of 2012 and became the punk rock anthem
for the dog days of summer. After releasing their sophomore effort, they went on a multi-city tour and by the end of 2012,
the band was re-releasing their signature album on Brooklyn's What's Your Rupture? label, which reached a much wider audience.
Their most recent release is their EP, All the Things You Broke, and has made an impression internationally. Now, the band
is back on tour, supported by the band White Fence, and is gaining new fans all the time. Their high-energy performances and
punk rock-style music has been a huge hit with music fans and the world over. Don't miss your chance to be there when this
one-of-a-kind band takes the stage.
Parquet Courts has found the road to success
a somewhat natural process. With punk rock veteran Andrew Savage leading the band, it was only a matter of time before his
talents would be recognized. And with the combined talents of guitarist Austin Brown, bassist Sean Yeaton and drummer Max
Savage, the band's star factor is even brighter. Their first big break came in 2012 with the release of their first full-length
album, Light Up Gold. It earned the band a plethora of new fans, and the praises of music critics. But, with the release of
their latest EP, All the Things You Broke, the band has seen international recognition. There's nothing like Parquet Courts'
unique brand of American punk out in the scene today, and fans are clamoring to see them live.
though Parquet Courts is gaining in popularity and critics have sung their praises in major publications like Pitchfork, The
Village Voice and SPIN, the band seems unphased by their instant fame. They're still just enjoying the ride, performing with
everything they have. While Max Savage pounds out the core of the songs on the snare drum, lead vocalist Andrew Savage and
Austin Brown bellow their signature lyrics and fill the room with noisy riffs. There's never a dull moment or even so much
as a breath between songs, and fans find themselves jumping and pumping their fists even if they don't know the words.
