ALBUM RELEASE // A Place to Bury Strangers ‘Transfixiation’ Out Now

“APTBS lives up to that fatalism with a meltdown of timeless proportions, sounding like The Yardbirds as fed through a blast furnace”

Jason Heller at NPR Music

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”

Line of Best Fit

“[Transfixiation] represents another giant step forwards in A Place To Bury Strangers’ continual evolution”

Drowned In Sound

“A Place to Bury Strangers is known to be a behemoth on stage, and Transfixiation is as loud as the group’s reputation merits.”

Slant Magazine
