Parts & Labor Share New MP3, Play SXSW.
Jagjaguwar are proud to share a new MP3 from Parts & Labor's already widely acclaimed opus Constant Future, which is out March 7 in the UK on CD/LP/Digital formats. "Rest" perfectly encapsulates the trio's ability to take elements of noise and turn them into an infectious pop song.
Listen to "Rest" here.
On March 8, Parts & Labor will celebrate the album's US release with a show at Monster Island Basement in their hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Check out the video flyer here. They will then hit the road in America, including a few appearances at the South By Southwest music festival, before embarking on a European tour in May (see below for UK headline dates; please note that there will be a more extensive jaunt later in the year).
