The band formerly known as Viet Cong have today announced their new name: moving forward, they will be known as Preoccupations.
In a statement released today they said « After finishing our latest record and taking some time off, we are excited to announce that we will be performing and recording as « Preoccupations » going forward. We will be previewing new material from a forthcoming record in a series of festivals and shows in North America and Europe in the coming months. We apologize to those who were adversely affected by our former band name. This was never anticipated nor our intent. We are artists and not politicians, we understand that the name reflected pain to some individuals and we are happy to change it and move on and focus on our music. Thanks to all our friends and fans. See you all soon. »
The video for the first single “Anxiety” is directed by David Yoonha Park.
Preoccupations have been hard at work recording their new self titled album, Preoccupations, to be reeled on Sept 16 2016.
