A Place To Bury Strangers

Noise is like death; they are both prone to speculations about what might or might not might be there, falsely perceived or deceptively real. They require a free fall of faith. In noise, you may choose to land lovingly on melody or you may stay lost in the technicolor grey sheets of teeth-on-glass distortion. If purgatory were an airport, APTBS' Oliver Ackermann would be the voice echoing through the abandoned terminals leading you to your departure, the sky above the runway filled with jets like a swarm of metallic locust. And that bass has got you feeling like riding a torpedo into Atlantis. It's enough to make the kids in back overtake security and rip up the front row seats and throw them into a bonfire because nobody can sit down to this shit anyway. This isn't the music to pick up the pieces, it's about calling bad luck bullshit and shattering that mirror into more pieces than there are empty coke bags in Brooklyn. It's safer than chemicals but it gives you the same high. It's a one sided argument; a thousand turbines aimed at a million megaphones in the bottom of the Grand Canyon aimed at your neighbor's window. Running lawnmowers dropped into a pool full of aluminum cans. A hail of light bulbs on a tin roof. This is infinte night, a dragstrip of mirrors, speed without end, amen

WATCH // A Place To Bury Strangers – “And I’m Up,” Coming Soon to a City Near You

When the video you’re about to watch is centered around the idea of an “Action Figure Destruction Derby,” you know you’re in for a real treat. Directed by animator Karl Ackermann, brother to Oliver, the new A Place To Bury Strangers video for “And I’m Up” represents a coming of age – a foray into adulthood. What better way to do so than blow up a bunch of toys and marvel at their twisted beauty? Enjoy above or at VICE.

The “And I’m Up” b/w “Don’t Stop” 7″ is now available at SC Distribution. Best part? It’s on translucent orange vinyl.

A Place To Bury Strangers head back out on tour with Bleeding Rainbow on Saturday, October 27 at Richmond’s Strange Matter. Dates include a stop at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest and M Pour Montreal. Check out the full schedule HERE.

Filmed on an iPhone with the 8mm app, they chose Central Park and APTBS headquarters, Death By Audio, as their set. Close friend, Sam Donahue, also got in on the fun, lending his hand in camera operation and props. Watch at SPIN or above.

In addition to their video, A Place To Bury Strangers announce new tour dates. They’re currently playing in Europe now and will end their overseas run with shows in Russia and Greece.
