Preoccupations have announced a new album, the amusingly titled New Material, and shared its first single, "Espionage." They have also announced some tour dates. New Material is due out March 23 via Jagjaguwar. Below is "Espionage," followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

The post-punk band were formerly known as Viet Cong, but released their first album as Preoccupations, also titled Preoccupations, in 2016 via Jagjaguwar. New Material is thus technically their third album. The band self-recorded the album, which was mixed by Justin Meldal-Johnson (M83, Wolf Alice).

Lead vocalist, songwriter, and bassist Matt Flegel had this to say about New Material in a press release: "It's an ode to depression. To depression and self-sabotage, and looking inward at yourself with extreme hatred."
