Ever since the release of their second album Light Up Gold in 2012, Parquet Courts have become one of the hottest rock bands to follow. They’re constantly praised by critics and fans alike and their albums receive stellar reviews, with their third record, Sunbathing Animals, reaching no. 55 on the Billboard charts. The critically acclaimed band has just dropped their fifth album, Human Performance, ready to be consumed and picked apart by the masses. But what is it about them that’s so appealing? It’s the raw emotion and power they exhibit on all of their albums. There’s something human and personal about their songs that makes them relatable. They continue to explore their emotions and anxieties on their latest release. To support the new release, Parquet Courts are touring and stopping by Chicago for a show at Metro with Soda as the opening act.
