In advance of their co-headlining tour this winter, Calgary’s Preoccupations and Detroit’s Protomartyr have announced a 7-inch single in which the bands covering each other’s work. The 7-inch officially drops on November 16th via Domino, but you can hear Protomartyr’s take on Preoccupations’ “Forbidden” below.

“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,'” Protomartyr vocalist Joe Casey said in a press release. “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.”

Preoccupations (fka Viet Cong) released its solid New Material earlier this year, and this summer Protomartyr doubled down on last year’s Relatives in Descent with a new EP, Consolation.
