viet cong preoccupations

Self Titled Album Out September 16 Via Jagjaguwar. Massive Tour This Autumn.

In the wake of the moral outrage that caused Canadian post punks Viet Cong to change their name to Preoccupations, they have still managed to find the time to write and record a follow up to their frankly stellar 2016 debut album. They’ve released two tracks so far from the record, namely ‘Anxiety’ and ‘Degraded’, which will also be named Preoccupations and will see the light of day on September 16th via Jagjauwar. You can listen to them below and check out the group’s tour dates below that.
