Parquet Courts sign to Rough Trade, announce Monastic Living EP and dates

Everyone’s fast-talking, Texas-via-Brooklyn punks Parquet Courts have just inked a worldwide deal with Rough Trade, and to celebrate, they’re doing what they do best… releasing another record and going on tour.

What gets me really cranked is that the forthcoming EP is called Monastic Living, so maybe they’ve decided to bow to the ever-relentless pressure to tap into the lucrative Christian Rock market. Instead of rambling about getting stoned and yelling about the conundrums of modern culture, there’s a greater than 3% chance that this next EP will see the group focus on extolling the virtues of abstinence and working out accompanying liturgical dance shapes to pull in their forthcoming live tour.

Or, you know, probably not.
