Cold Pumas

The band formerly known as Viet Cong have announced their new name: moving forward, they will be known as Preoccupations.

In a statement they said:
“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.”

After two intimate sold out shows in June, Preoccupations step up to Oval Space for a show this November.

Cold Pumas
Stripped-back repeater punk from London / Brighton. On their new LP Cold Pumas explore a deeper love for melody and motorik rhythm in equal measure, across its 38 minutes, The Hanging Valley (Faux Discx / Gringo Records) covers such peripheral subjects as the imperceptible bow towards the thirty-something honours list, the vacuous, rising diphthong of the inner-city commute and the suppressed rush of blood towards vainglorious internet smear.
