Preoccupations have released a new single from their excellent new self-titled album. "Degraded" sees the banding taking on a more traditional song structure, with the chorus leaning as close to pop sensibilities as you'll see from them. However the band's lyrics pierce through with Matthew Flegel concluding "There's nothing left here to compete for. Degrade into a fraction of yourself."

Last month, the band announced the new album with the release of the video for album opener "Anxiety" which you can view below. 

The band, formerly know as Viet Cong, recently sat down with Fast Company to discuss the new album and events leading up to their recent name change, you can read it here.

Preoccupations will be touring North America extensively this summer and fall, starting with a run of dates with Explosions in the Sky as well as FYF Fest in LA in August. Full run of dates are listed below.
