In 2015 post-punk band Viet Cong released one of the year's most impressive records, but their debut was overshadowed by the controversy surrounding their name. Viet Cong addressed the situation at the end of the year, promising fans they'd scrap the name and come up with something new. Today the Band Previously Known As Viet Cong announced their new name is Preoccupations, and they'll preview some new material on the road later this year. According to the band's Twitter & Facebook profiles, the new record will be out sometime in 2016 (date TBA). Read the band's posting on the matter below:

"After finishing our latest record and taking some time off, we are excited to announce that we will be performing and recording as "Preoccupations" going forward. We will be previewing new material from a forthcoming record in a series of festivals and shows in North America and Europe in the coming months. We apologize to those who were adversely affected by our former band name. This was never anticipated nor our intent. We are artists and not politicians, we understand that the name reflected pain to some individuals and we are happy to change it and move on and focus on our music. Thanks to all our friends and fans. See you all soon."
