Protomartyr announce split 7" with Preoccupations

With the band's set to tour with each other across North America later this year, Protomartyr and Preoccupations have now announced their plans for a 7" split release, covering each other's songs.

The new double-sided single will see Preoccupations taking on ‘Pontiac ’87’ and Protomartyr sharing a version of ‘Forbidden’, with the 7" set to drop on the 16th November via Domino Recordings.

Speaking about their contribution, Protomartyr's singer Joe Casey explained, "There's an old adage that goes something like, 'if you're going to cover a song by a beloved Canadian band, it's best to pick the second shortest one.' So, 'Forbidden' it is. We all really liked the outro part and had the brilliant idea to extend it. And that, my friends, is how you make musical history."
