Preoccupations, the band formerly known as Viet Cong, will release their new album next week via Jagjaguwar. They've just shared the album's 11-minute centerpiece, "Memory," which features Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner contributing his distinctly smoky, emotive vocals. It's one of the LP's standout cuts and you can stream it here:

The band are gearing up for their fall tour, and most of the North American dates are with Australia's Methyl Ethel, including the NYC stop at Warsaw on October 14. Tickets are still available. Updated tour dates are listed, along with two other video streams from the new LP, below.

If you missed it, Gang of Four's Andy Gill weighed in on the band's name change.
