Published Mar 22, 2018Preoccupations are officially ready to unveil their new album of new material called New Material. As such, you can stream the entire album now.

"It's an ode to depression. To depression and self-sabotage, and looking inward at yourself with extreme hatred," the band's Matt Flegel previously explained in a statement. "Finishing 'Espionage' was when I realized. I looked at the rest of the lyrics and realized the magnitude of what was wrong."
You can hear new material like the previously shared "Espionage," "Antidote" and "Disarray," as well as a whole lot more, below. You can also see all the band's upcoming tour dates over here.
