Parquet Courts have announced details of new single 'Sunbathing Animal' as well as a UK tour.

The US band have signed to Rough Trade in the UK and will release 'Sunbathing Animal' on Record Store Day, which this year falls on April 19. The song will come backed by B-side 'Pilgrims To Nowhere' and will be available on 7" vinyl next month.

Audio of the song is not available but, in an unorthodox move, Parquet Courts have made the sheet music to 'Sunbathing Animal' available to view online. The hi-resolution sheet music can be seen on Rough Trade's official website now.

In addition to the band's new songs, which follow the release of debut album 'Light Up Gold' and EP 'Tally All The Things You Broke' in 2013, Parquet Courts will tour in June before appearances at Longitude and Latitude festivals in July. The group will start their short tour in Glasgow before taking in shows in London, Liverpool and Birmingham, with a final date in Oxford on June 26.

Parquet Courts will play:

Glasgow SWG3 (June 21)
Liverpool Kazimer (22)
Birmingham Institute (23)
London ULU (25)
Oxford O2 Academy (26)
