Since Parquet Courts quietly released Light Up Gold on their own Dull Tools label in July, there’s been a slow but steady build up to the recent bursting-at-the-seams enthusiasm. That well-deserved fervor has led to the band signing with What’s Your Rupture?, who will be releasing the CD on January 15th (WYR? will also repress Light Up Gold on vinyl for Dull Tools). Meanwhile, Stereogum has premiered the mp3 for the titular track, “Light Up Gold II,” and Pitchfork has dubbed “Borrowed Time” a Best New Track. Forget about it!
The band will be bringing their tacos to your town, with east coast and southern dates on the books, and west coast dates in the works.
