LISTEN // A Place To Bury Strangers Announces New Year’s Eve Shows And Dave Clark Remix Of “Straight”

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.57.35 PM

A Place To Bury Strangers would like to ring in the New Year with you. 2015’s been a great run, and what better way to go out than with a lot of feedback, fuzz, and a touch of tinnitus? They’ll be playing New Year’s Eve at The Viper Room in Los Angeles, followed by a night at Milk Bar in San Francisco. To tide you over ’til then, they’ve shared a melted, crushing remix from UK producer Dave Clarke of “Straight” off Transfixiation. Dive in head first, it’ll only hurt a bit.

WATCH // A Place To Bury Strangers Share Video For “Supermaster,” Dates For Europe Tour

A Place To Bury Strangers are bringing their latest album Transfixiation back on the road to Europe in October and November this year. The tour focuses in on Eastern Europe and Greece.

Just in time for the start, the band have shared another video from album track “Supermaster”. The video was directed by Matthew Portman, who explains:

“The Reptilian brain also known as the R-complex refers to our primitive and instinctive brain function that is shared by all reptiles and mammals, including humans. It is the most powerful and oldest of our collective brain functions. The Reptilian brain is also responsible for some of the most destructive impulses we as humans possess like violence, dominance and territoriality.”

WATCH // A Place To Bury Strangers Share Video For “Now It’s Over”

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 is known to be a behemoth on stage, and Transfixiation is as loud as the group’s reputation merits.
SLANT Magazine

Some of the most inventive and intelligent noise rock since the turn of the century.
The Line of Best Fit

A Place To Bury Strangers have shared a striking animated video for Now It’s Over off of Transfixiation out now on Dead Oceans. Cloaked in brooding rhythms and shoegaze fuzz, Now It’s Over is a haunting tale of woe from the experimental Brooklyn outfit. Featuring a protagonist who’s never quite in focus, shapeshifting shadows, and a stormy, night-time drive, the video for Now It’s Over is every part as ominous and bleak as its name suggests. Speaking of the final product, director and lead animator Dave Merson Hess explains,

I loved the mood of Now It’s Over, and the way the lyrics and arrangement captured the feeing of a breakup as a complete destruction of a particular, insular reality, a way of living being ripped apart at the seams, on both vague and sudden terms. Film noir felt like a perfect match for it. The inevitability of failure built into the genre fir the song’s lyrics, murky, reverbed vocals, and jagged guitar sounds.”

Starting today in Hong Kong they’ll orbit the globe a time or two with stops in Australia, Europe, and dates across the United States. Full list of dates below.

WATCH // A Place To Bury Strangers Shares “What We Don’t See” Video Dir. By Jimmy Fusil, EU Tour Starts Tomorrow

“APTBS recorded Transfixiation, and to us it’s a cubist self-portrait of their live presence; distorted (but accurate!), it captures the essence of their sound from multiple perspectives. Those three aren’t just loud, they move a LOT OF AIR. They move a lot of things, making and breaking them in the process”
– Jimmy Fusil [PopSoda]

A Place To Bury Strangers‘ new album, Transfixiation, is out now on Dead Oceans. Premiering this morning via Drowned In Sound, the video directed by Jimmy Fusil [PopSoda], invites us into the band’s practice from the point of view of the space itself. Watch it above, on YouTube, or for our international viewers on DailyMotion. APTBS also begin their European tour tomorrow night in Dublin at Whelan’s with September Girls.
