Parquet Courts to tour UK with PC Worship under the name PCPC

Four British tour dates announced as part of wider world tour

Parquet Courts have announced plans to tour the UK with New York band PC Worship under the name PCPC.

The two bands will stage an extensive US and European tour later this year with PCPC playing two gigs in England in November. The first of these shows will take place at Ramsgate’s Music Hall venue on November 24 with a second gig at Electrowerkz in London scheduled for the following day.

Parquet Courts will also play separate headline dates in November with gigs at Wardrobe in Leeds and London’s Laundry confirmed today. Scroll down for full listings and ticket details.


Issuing a statement about PCPC, Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage (pictured right) says: “Like P-Funk, MinuteFlag, Ciccone Youth, Loutallica and Red House Chili Painters (bet you didn’t know about that one), PCPC is what happens when two legendary rock juggernauts join forces. In this instance, members of PC Worship and Parquet Courts have merged into a NY noise-rock confederacy, each band bringing their own sonic distinctions. Spawning from a long history of playing shows together as separate entities, PCPC is born out of an aesthetic solidarity, and will to create something new. Look for them this Fall in select cities throughout USA and Europe.”

Additionally, a new video for ‘Bodies’ has been revealed. Watch the video below. ‘Bodies’ features on the band’s latest album ‘Sunbathing Animal’, released earlier this year, and was directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.

Tour dates:

Ramsgate, Music Hall (November 24)
London, Electroworkz (25)
Leeds, Wardrobe (26)
London, The Laundry (27)
