Parquet Courts are preparing to deliver their forthcoming album, Wide Awake!, arriving May 18th through Rough Trade. Today, the Brooklyn outfit shares their new single, “Mardi Gras Beads”, and its accompanying music video.

The track is the first Wide Awake! single written by Austin Brown shared so far, and was first released as a Record Store Day exclusive. It’s said to be representative of a “more tender and emotionally exposed side” of the album. “It’s a song about commitment to yourself for better or worse,” Brown shares through a press release.

Directed by Brother Willis, the music video was filmed during Mardi Gras and features plenty of footage from the New Orleans festivities. In it, the garage rockers put up a missing person flyer for Brown as they go searching for the vocalist/guitarist. Eventually, they reunite at their scheduled show. Watch it below.

Parquet Courts previously previewed Wide Awake! with “Almost Had To Start A Fight / In And Out Of Patience”, written by A. Savage.

In related news, Parquet Courts have announced a new string of fall West Coast tour dates and promise to reveal an upcoming New York show in the near future. Check out their complete itinerary below, which includes festival dates at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees, Chicago’s Lollapolooza, and Missoula Montana’s Travelers’ Rest.
