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 are currently on the road, touring in support of their forthcoming record, Worship. The album is out next Tuesday, but you can listen to the album in full a week before its release via the Stereogum premiere! Like what you hear? Pre-order WorshipHERE.
A Place To Bury Strangers head to the Metallica music festival, Orion Music & More, this weekend. For a band whom LA Weekly recently commented “you almost wished you still had braces because your teeth shook in your head, threatening to go crooked” after seeing the live show, a performance at this festival only makes sense. See all their upcoming tour dates HERE.
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.
A Place To Bury Strangers release a new video for “You Are The One,” off their forthcoming album, Worship. The video premiered on SPIN earlier today. Directing duo Matt Moroz & Tracy Maurice deliver a twisted nightmare in this grindhouse-esque clip produced by Greencard Pictures. Shot on 16mm film, their dark, experimental style expertly mirrors the mood of APTBS’s track and elevates the music video to a cinematic noir thriller.
Moroz and Maurice’s creation recalls a 70s-era, B-movie that is definitley Not Safe For Work. The duo says, “We really loved the song. The video evoked something extremely dark, weird and disturbing.” In it, the viewer follows a mysterious figure as he viciously beats total strangers, leers at nubile young girls at an underground club, and initiates a blood-soaked make-out session. Watch above.
Starting today, you can pre-order A Place To Bury Strangers’ new album, Worship. They are offering a pretty sweet deluxe bundle just for you; it includes the album on limited edition (while supplies last) “blue death” vinyl and CD, 7″ vinyl edition of You Are the One / I Can Feel Your Heart Inside My Head, early gratification download code supplied for full album (redeemable on June 11th), a 17×22 poster featuring album artwork and finally, you’ll be entered to win a Death By Audio ‘Fuzz War’ effects pedal made by Oliver of APTBS.
