Preoccupations Release Video for “Degraded”

Preoccupations release new video for "Degraded" The track is off their forthcoming self-titled release.

The forthcoming, self-titled LP from Preoccupations comes out via Flemish Eye/Jagjaguwar in just over a month. Today, the band have released another video from the album for the “moody” and “menacing” track “Degraded.” The director Valentina Tapia tells us “This video offers an encounter with the primordial ruins of a post-human landscape, where sentient sculptural artifacts attempt to reassemble themselves piece by piece. Unidentified abstracted organisms carry on and thrive in a terrain that’s begun to settle back into itself, as rendered in scenes of mixed digital and painted 2D and 3D animation”. The track, follows the last single from Preoccupations, “Anxiety”.

Preoccupations are about to hit the road for a US tour which includes a stop at FYF in LA later this month. All dates both here and the rest of the world tour can be found below.
