Formerly Viet Cong, Preoccupations have been one of our favourites since we began booking and we are very pleased to bringing them to our home of The New Adelphi Club upon the release of the bands 4th studio album.
“Canada’s Preoccupations return to the post-punk, post-pandemic world with Arrangements. Their 4th studio album finds them restoring their roots with the singular, guitar driven, dissonant yet anthemic washes of intricate noise that has brought them international acclaim since their basement beginnings. For lovers of all things Bowie, Branca, Spacemen 3 and MBV, progressive punk, jangle rock and mangled goth. Arrangements sees Preoccupations finally and confidently inhabiting the dystopia that they have been carefully creating from their musical genesis. They are in a room with taped up windows, except for a tiny pinprick of light beaming from the otherworld onto the far wall, upside down and blurred, it’s recognizable enough to fill you with warm familiarity and nostalgia of unknown origins. Preoccupations Arrangements will be released into the world on September 9th, 2022 “
The Canadian outfit have been an insititution of the International Post-Punk scene and they join us to maker their debut Hull Performance.
