Parquet Courts have released a new video and another batch of fall tour dates.

The Lynyrd Skynryd-referencing Freebird II features on the New York City quartet's latest LP, 'Wide Awake', which was released in May. The song is the fourth single from the record, following Mardi Gras Beads, Total Football and the title track.

The visual, meanwhile, was directed by Claes Nordwall, who also worked on Berlin Got Blurry from 'Human Performance'. Speaking about the video, frontman Andrew Savage said:

"Originally there was a shot of us ripping up a confederate flag in the video, but we decided it wasn’t obvious enough that the flag was getting destroyed, so we cut it. But just in case you were wondering, we are not fans of it."

The band have also lined up another run of fall tour dates, kicking off on November 30 in Pittsburgh, with tickets on general sale at 10am on August 3. The new shows will follow their current US and European shows.
