“APTBS lives up to that fatalism with a meltdown of timeless proportions, sounding like The Yardbirds as fed through a blast furnace”
A Place To Bury Strangers‘ breakneck and brain smashing new album, Transfixiation, is out now on Dead Oceans.
We’re so proud of the band’s fourth studio album and critics agree:
“some of the most inventive and intelligent noise rock since the turn of the century”
“[Transfixiation] represents another giant step forwards in A Place To Bury Strangers’ continual evolution”
“A Place to Bury Strangers is known to be a behemoth on stage, and Transfixiation is as loud as the group’s reputation merits.”
A Place To Bury Strangers will tour in support of Transfixiation starting starting tonight 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. Full list of tour dates after the jump.
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.
