Preoccupations, the band formerly known as Viet Cong, are releasing their first album under their new name, also titled Preoccupations, on September 16 via Jagjaguwar. Previously they had shared the album's first single, "Anxiety," via its video, along with another track from the record, "Degraded." Now "Degraded" has an abstract animated video. Watch below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Valentina Tapia (Deerhunter's "Snakeskin") directed the video and had this to say about it in a press release: "This video offers an encounter with the primordial ruins of a post-human landscape, where sentient sculptural artifacts attempt to reassemble themselves piece by piece. Unidentified abstracted organisms carry on and thrive in a terrain that's begun to settle back into itself, as rendered in scenes of mixed digital and painted 2D and 3D animation."

There are various advantages of 3D renderings like it may be used to create three dimensional views of parts and different building things which are very naturalistic and certainly visualize your building. 3D rendering empowers architects and engineers but also the complete construction industry as well.
