Viet Cong is the debut studio album by Canadian rock band Viet Cong. It was released on January 20, 2015, by Flemish Eye in Canada and Jagjaguwar internationally. Viet Cong is the only album released by the band under this name, as they changed their name to "Preoccupations" in 2016. The first single from the album, "Continental Shelf", was released for streaming on October 15, 2014. The album also features a re-recorded version of a previous song, "Bunker Buster".

Viet Cong appear to be systematically lessening that bite and opening themselves up to their audience, although traces of their former selves remain. It's a process of steadily rinsing out the old to get to somewhere new. On Bunker Buster (not included on this release), the nascent Viet Cong impaled themselves on jagged guitar lines, lost monotone vocals, and lines where they slowly fall through the snow. What "Cassette" ultimately does is throw down a set of directions Viet Cong could head in and allow us to sit back and wonder which will be the strongest thread. As a glimpse of what a band could be it’s fascinating, especially as the songs leave the impression of a group with strong personalities in the mix, all determined to leave a stamp on the music they make. Flegel and Munro have talked about their day jobs, in flooring and cupcake delivery, respectively.

Are there known pressing issues with this? I purchased a sealed copy of this from Discogs and there's really bad skipping at the end of Static Wall. Really great record overall though - some of their best work imo.
  • Shan
I just bought a used copy on Ebay. The record itself is in great shape, there are no scratches, but some of the songs (particularly Throw it Away) are extremely distorted at places and skip.
  • Arcanefire
I have a copy of the EP and mine is not hand numbered anywhere.
  • Beazerdred
Does every issue have a lyric insert? Mine has simple printed lyric sheet
  • Endieyab
Obviously everyone has figured out it is this release? Same sans the numbering ...
  • Samuhn
I was wondering the same thing... Mine is as you described.
  • Nagor
Strange. Mine is also not numbered, but has a silk screened jacket with the black hype sticker stating its the limited edition of 1500, not the white sticker. Hmmmm...the mystery continues.
  • Levion
i have this hand numbered one, 1302/1500 and the one without.the slight differences are the printing on jacket. the numbered one has a white lettering on it but the other has a almost out of ink white lettering on it. i guess the limited edition has a silk screened jacket, but the other doesn't.and the hype sticker black for the limited, white for the other.
  • Rexfire
Still available on
  • Skillet
Yeah I was going to say, I have a copy from MS en-route now.
