DiS Interview with Oliver Ackermann, Fan Videos Galore!

In the midst of their European tour, A Place To Bury Strangers are hard at work. With plans to join This Will Destroy You for a summer tour, their days on the road seem to be never-ending. Oliver Ackermann recently found some time to sit down with Drowned In Sound for a loooong interview…

“Lots of things influenced the record. Every time I sit down and write a song I tend to reflect upon times from within my life. Not just times that have sucked in the past, but sometimes things kind of sucked while we were making the record. Horrible things happen and these are the moments when I feel more passionate to write something.”

Read the full interview at Drowned In Sound.

The new album comes out June 26th and we’ve got pre-order information coming your way soon! Lastly, we’ve received quite a few unofficial videos from fans and decided to share some with you. Watch “You Are the One” above and head to YouTube for “Nothing Will Surprise Me.”

A Place To Bury Strangers Announce West Coast Tour with This Will Destroy You

Starting in June, A Place To Bury Strangers head west for a string of dates with Suicide Squeeze’s This Will Destroy You. The two bands share an affinity for layered sonics and noisey, sweaty perfomances. Their sounds are dark and crushing. If APTBS are guitars as jet engines, TWDY are strings as avalanche. See list of new dates below! The summer tour ends with a special performance at Metallica’s Orion Festival.

Strangers are currently in Europe, touring in support of their Onwards to the Wall EP. The new album, Worship, drops June 26th; keep an eye out for the pre-order. You can stream the first single HERE.

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.
