LISTEN: Viet Cong Releases Second Single, “Silhouettes,” Expands North American Tour

The post-punk group’s self-titled LP is out January 20 on Jagjaguar.

Following the earth-shaking single “Continental Shelf,” the Calgary post-punk (and post-Women) group Viet Cong have shared the dark new track “Silhouettes,” which premiered over at the Fader earlier this morning.

According to frontman Matt Flegel, the Joy Division-infused song was written shortly after he was “severely electrocuted” at a show. Rock and roll, man.
