Canadian post-punks Preoccupations - formerly Viet Cong - release their first self-titled album under the new moniker on September 16 via Jagjaguwar.
'Degraded' follows earlier full-length taster 'Anxiety', in a similar dark, sonically rich vein.
The band head to the UK in November for several dates as part of their European tour.
