Last we reported on Preoccupations a couple of weeks ago they had just been robbed twice in one week, losing most of their gear when their van and trailer was stolen on tour in San Francisco less than a week after being robbed in Vancouver. We’re happy to report that the band has now reached their goal on their GoFundMe campaign to help them replace their gear. The band has now a shared a new video for “Decompose.” Directed by Evan Henderson, the video was filmed while the band performed live at Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern and shot on film which had been boiled for two weeks in a salt water brine prior to filming. Hence the video has a psychedelic feel. Check it out below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Preoccupations released a new album, the amusingly titled New Material, this back in March via Jagjaguwar (it was our Album of the Week). 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).
