Preoccupations announce ‘New Material’ (listen to “Espionage”), touring

preoccupations

Canada’s Preoccupations are back with their third album, bluntly titled New Material, which will be out March 23 via Jagjaguwar. Frontman Matt Flegel says the record is “an ode to depression. To depression and self-sabotage, and looking inward at yourself with extreme hatred.” The first single is “Espionage,” a real post-punk corker, driving and danceable (in a goth club kind of way). You can watch the “visualizer” for that below.

Preoccupations have also just announced a spring tour which hits NYC for two intimate shows: Rough Trade on April 19 with tourmates Freak Heat Waves and Elsewhere Zone One on April 20 with Montreal’s Odonis Odonis. Tickets for Rough Trade and Elsewhere go on sale Friday, January 19 at noon, with an AmEx presale for Rough Trade beginning Wednesday (1/17) at noon.

All tour dates are listed, along with New Material cover art and tracklist, below.
