Preoccupations started the new year on an impressive foot, announcing their upcoming tour and brand new LP, as well as releasing lead single, Espionage.
The band have always produced songs that worked through themes of creation, destruction, and futility, and always done so with singular post-punk grit. The textures are evocative and razor-sharp. The wire is always a live one. But while that darker side may have been well-explored, that's not quite the same as it being fully, intensely lived. This time it was, and the result is upcoming-album, New Material, a collection that broadens and deepens Preoccupations to a true mastery of their sound. In it lies the difference between witnessing a car crash and crashing your own. It's packed with live scale punch and adrenaline filled lines.
Presented by Bird On The Wire.
This is an 18+ event.
