A Place To Bury Strangers‘ new album, Transfixiation, is out in just over a month on Dead Oceans and today they’re sharing the fantastic second single, “We’ve Come So Far”, via The FADER. “We’ve Come So Far” is a blistering all out explosion of sound and is possibly the closest the band has ever come to capturing the energy of their live performances in a recording.
Guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann says of the song – “The lyrics were written by themselves. The meaning is absolute truth. Life is super intense and fucked up so even accomplishing anything is a huge feat. We should all be proud of that. When we have worked extremely hard for something for so long it is just amazing to look back on it all. Sometimes I just want to shake people for feeling useless. There is so much potential and amazing things going on all around. Help make something great for us all to enjoy. ‘We’ve Come So Far’ has an endless building feeling which mimics life.”
A Place To Bury Strangers will tour in support of Transfixiation starting next month and will be joined on the road by Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Creepoid and more! They cap it all off with a performance at Austin Psych Fest in May. Hear “We’ve Come So Far” above or over at The Fader. Full list of tour dates after the jump.
A few weeks ago we announced Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers will be releasing a new album Transfixation February 17th, 2015. We previewed the first single “Straight” a few weeks ago, and today the band shared a brand new video for the track by director Brook Linder. Inspired by VHS scrambles and the creepy Max Headroom broadcast in 1987, watch the new VHS-dubbed video above or here on YouTube and Dailymotion for our international viewers.
The band has also announced a string of upcoming European and North American tour dates including a performance at next year’s Austin Psych Fest in May.. Click read more to see all tour dates.
After two years of constant touring and recording, Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers will release their new album Transfixiation Feb. 17, 2015 via Dead Oceans. Transfixiation, the fourth album from the band, is a bold experimental step forward. Rather than fixating on precious recording techniques and minute details, the members of the group – guitarist/singer Olvier Ackermann, bassist Dion Lunadon, and hard-hitting drummer Robi Gonzalez – trusted their instincts and tried to keep things as pure as possible. Check out single “Straight” above, or listen on Soundcloud / YouTube.
