LISTEN // A Place To Bury Strangers Shares “We’ve Come So Far” From ‘Transfixiation’ Out February 17th

A Place To Bury Strangers‘ new album, Transfixiation, is out in just over a month on Dead Oceans and today they’re sharing the fantastic second single, “We’ve Come So Far”, via The FADER. “We’ve Come So Far” is a blistering all out explosion of sound and is possibly the closest the band has ever come to capturing the energy of their live performances in a recording.

Guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann says of the song – “The lyrics were written by themselves. The meaning is absolute truth. Life is super intense and fucked up so even accomplishing anything is a huge feat. We should all be proud of that. When we have worked extremely hard for something for so long it is just amazing to look back on it all. Sometimes I just want to shake people for feeling useless. There is so much potential and amazing things going on all around. Help make something great for us all to enjoy. ‘We’ve Come So Far’ has an endless building feeling which mimics life.”

A Place To Bury Strangers will tour in support of Transfixiation starting next month and will be joined on the road by Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Creepoid and more! They cap it all off with a performance at Austin Psych Fest in May. Hear “We’ve Come So Far” above or over at The Fader. Full list of tour dates after the jump.

Pre-order the album via Secretly Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

WATCH // Greylag Release “Yours To Shake” Video Via NPR Music, Share “Songs That Inspire Us” Mix Via Guitar World

We’d like to welcome to the world the first of many Greylag videos. The Portland trio enlisted director Ben Fee to construct a video to match the intensity of single “Yours to Shake” from their debut album Greylag. Watch the trippy video above or at NPR Music.

“Often times, people are after things that they are just instinctively drawn towards. Whether or not those things are good for them, doesn’t matter too much. And those things also blind those people in the process—making them bypass, misuse, under appreciate some really magical things in the journey. Even when they fly so close to their goal, and they can see it could be the end of them, the folks still go further. This doom, and perspective, and instinct, we wanted to paint in a visually poetic way, so as to give a strong feeling, instead of beating a message into the viewers heads with an obvious ABC narrative.” - Ben Fee, Director

But wait, there’s more! The band has also thrown together a Spotify playlist detailing “Songs That Inspire Us” for Guitar World. Check it out here.
