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

Praise for Worship

“A Place to Bury Strangers have offered up another winning album that, while hardly the most pop-friendly record you’ll hear this year, proves itself worthy of revisiting.” – Consequence of Sound

“It’s cleaner, sharper, the scree of noise is more glassy sheets rather than an amorphous squall. It is, according to bassist Dion Lunadon, ‘Our vision of what music in 2012 should sound like,’ and if you can imagine a future dystopian parallel to today where this is the mainstream, then you have just imagined something very cool indeed. – NOISEY

A Place To Bury Strangers head to the Metallica music festival, Orion Music & More, this weekend.

See all their upcoming tour dates HERE.

LSTN: A Place To Bury Strangers’ New Album Available for Streaming on The Quietus

A Place To Bury Strangers new album, Worship, is out now in the UK and on June 26 everywhere else, but you can listen to it now in full at The Quietus. “‘This album was written, recorded, mixed and mastered by A Place To Bury Strangers. It is our vision of what our music should sound like in 2012, not someone else’s interpretation,’ says the band’s Dion Lunadon. ‘Every sound on the album is made by us and our tools; tools created by us, used on no other recordings, and purposefully built for this project. This is real.’” Stream the record and read the rest of The Quietus article HERE.

Like what you hear? Pre-order Worship. Only a couple of weeks left to win that sweet effects pedal handmade by Oliver Ackermann himself! See APTBS live in concert this summer. Dates HERE.

LSTN: A Place To Bury Strangers – “And I’m Up”, Pre-order Album Now to Win Pedal

A Place To Bury Strangers share the second single off their new album, Worship. Titled “And I’m Up,” the single is something singer Oliver Ackermann calls “that classic 50′s vibe our parents grew up loving oh so much and then cramming down our throats through subliminal early life listening.” Stream “And I’m Up” below!

The track premiered earlier this morning on Consequence of Sound, who writes, “The New York noise-rockers took control of their latest record, not only recording and mixing it themselves, but actually building the tools used to do all that. You can hear how all that hard work paid off in the latest album track to be released, ‘And I’m Up.’” Read the full review HERE.

Worship is out June 24, but here’s a little secret: When you pre-order the album, you’ll receive an instant gratification code, which allows you to download the ENTIRE album before it’s released. Better yet? If you purchase the deluxe bundle, you’ll be entered to win a Death By Audio ‘Fuzz War’ effects pedal, make by Oliver Ackermann himself. YOU KNOW YOU WANT THAT PEDAL! Pre-order HERE.

Don’t miss APTBS on tour! Right now they’re on the road with This Will Destroy You. See all their dates HERE.
