Parquet Courts co-frontman A. Savage returns with his second solo album, Several Songs About Fire. His first solo outing on Rough Trade was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding), and features a dazzling array of guests, including Cate Le Bon, and members of Kamikaze Palm Tree, Caroline, and Ultimate Painting. Featuring singles Elvis In The Army and Thanksgiving Prayer, you already know you're gonna love this flippin' rekkid! - Flying Out

Celebrated visual artist and dynamic co-frontman of seminal punk band Parquet Courts, A. Savage announces his second solo album – and first for Rough Trade – with "Elvis in the Army", a tightly-wound return to form that places us in a subterranean venue where a livid cymbal raises the room’s blood pressure. A buzzing meditation on places present and past, the track showcases Savage's gifts as a lyricist, what album producer John Parish calls “an emotional openness guarded by a laconic wit.”
