A Place To Bury Strangers “Worship” Out June 26

The first track from the LP, “You Are The One,” can be heard today at SPIN.com. You can also stream and download it now from our Soundcloud. Worship will be out June 26 (June 11 UK/EU).

A Place To Bury Strangers Part of LAMC Split 7″ Series

Famous Class just started their LAMC split 7″ series and A Place To Bury Strangers will be on the first release. It’s all in memory of Ariel Panero, who created the Less Artists More Condos New York concert series. Panero put on the shows so that certain artists could get the recognition they may not otherwise receive. Famous Class has enlisted the help of their favorite bands in the 7″ series, asking they share unreleased  tracks for the A-side and then those bands submit their favorite emerging bands for the b-side. You can read more about the backstory at Famous Class.

A Place To Bury Strangers/Ceremony 7″ is out on April 10th! 100% of the proceeds go to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Saves the Music. Pre-order available HERE starting March 12th

School of Seven Bells Remix A Place To Bury Strangers

A Place To Bury Strangers have released a remix of their song “So Far Away” put together by School of Seven Bells. The track is available exclusively at SPIN.com today. The new version lifts Strangers’ dark sound towards hazy bliss with gentle vocals from the Deheza sisters and subtle electro beats.

LISTEN TO SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS REMIX HERE!

The band will be touring in support of their recent EP Onwards To The Wall, across the US. Several new headlining dates have been announced as well as a full European tour that runs through mid-May. To cap things off, APTBS will join Metallica at their Orion Music Festival in Atlantic City on June 24th. Joining lead singer & guitarist Oliver Ackermann and bassist Dion Lunadon for the dates will be Robi Gonzalez on drums. The band sent a message to fans, saying:

As some of you may know, Jay Space is no longer playing drums in A Place To Bury Strangers. We salute Jay as having been such an important part of the band and continues to be very much loved friend and brother. We wish him all the best for the future. For the upcoming US/European tour dates we are super excited to be bringing on Robi Gonzalez (Jubilee, Trouble Andrew) as our drummer. We are chomping at the bit to get back on the road and can’t wait to see all of our awesome fans again!

The trio will join The Joy Formidable and Exitmusic for most of their US shows. A full list of tour dates and links to buy tickets are available HERE.

Out Today: A Place To Bury Stranger’s Onwards To The Wall

A Place To Bury Strangers stunning new EP, Onwards To The Wall, is out today folks and it’s been going like hotcakes already! Wait, what does that saying even mean anyway? Are hotcakes really in that much demand? Much like hotcakes though, this EP is dense and satisfying, and many folks seem to agree with us. Check out these nice words from a few critics already:

“APTBS re-arrange the basic elements of Noise-Pop by destroying whatever preconceived notion you had towards the genre. Instruments are merely tools used to test the limits and knowledge of what sonic exploration really means, and Onwards to the Wall resembles the Home Depot at times.” -Aquarium Drunkard

“With moments of breathing room and stripped melodies, APTBS continue subtle explorations of their strengths and the conflict between cacophony and harmony.” -Consequence of Sound

Onwards to the Wall opens with “I Lost You”…a pummeling onslaught of banshee-wail guitar stacked on top of a chugging motorik bass riff, plus some gnarly, rancid feedback.” -Pitchfork

Order the Onwards To The Wall HERE and check out their recent interview with NYLON guys, where you can stream the full EP for free.
