Preoccupations, the post-punk outfit formerly known as Viet Cong, have expanded their summer tour schedule. Following festival appearances at Sasquatch!, Best Kept Secret, and Ottawa Blues, the CoSigned band will join Explosions in the Sky for a run of dates in Texas, California, and Oregon at the end of August.
In addition to touring, Preoccupations have been hard at work on a new album, their first under the new moniker. According to a press release, it’s expected to drop this fall on Jagjaguwar/Flemish Eye.
