Protomartyr release a split 7" with their friends and future tourmates Preoccupations. Conceptually similar to Protomartyr's recent split 7" with Spray Paint, the release features each band covering the other, with Protomartyr performing their rendition of Preoccupations' "Forbidden," while Preoccupations give Protomartyr's "Pontiac '87" a reworking. Protomartyr's singer Joe Casey had this to say of the band's cover: "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."

 

For those who find this sonic pairing palatable to the ear, the two bands will join up for a co-headlining tour in late November. Additionally, Protomartyr just performed as the "special guest" for the anticipated grand reopening of Detroit's UFO Factory, a much beloved venue that was damaged by developers one year ago.
