Preoccupations will be hitting the road again this spring, playing a series of US dates including US festivals Coachella, Shaky Knees and Mission Creek Festivals. The dates will see the band cross North America before they head to Europe to play more shows including Primavera Festival.
Known for their commanding live show, Preoccupations play with precision and a knife cutting tension. The Chicago Tribune rave "With businesslike efficiency, the group generated maximum squall, guitars scraping like metal, the relentless, primal pulse of the drums pushing through the noise and Matt Flegel's tense vocals leaping out of the murk," while The Guardian state quite simply "It's a blisteringly intense form of release... and the songs are soaked in ominous tension."
Last year's self-titled album drew rave reviews across the board with The New York Times, Pitchfork, Billboard, Consequence of Sound and more all hailing it as a one of a kind record from a band who continues to push their sound.
Tour dates are listed below with more shows both here in North America and the rest of the world to be announced soon.
