Preoccupations have shared "Antidote," the second single from their forthcoming album New Material. Led by a throbbing, stabbing bassline and industrial-strength drums, it's more of a pop song than you might first think, though the song takes a left turn down a long dark hallway halfway through. Between this and "Espionage," this record is shaping up to be a good one. You can watch the video for the song below.

New Material will be out March 23 via Jagjaguwar and Preoccupations' tour starts in April and includes two shows in NYC:  Rough Trade on April 19 with tourmates Freak Heat Waves (tickets) and Elsewhere Zone One on April 20 with Montreal’s Odonis Odonis. (tickets). They've added a few more dates to the tour -- updated Preoccupations tour schedule is below.
