The Luyas’ sophomore album Animator isn’t out until next Tuesday, October 16, but you can listen to it in full below or at WNYC’s Soundcheck where it premiered this morning! Pre-order the album HERE!
“At the heart is singer Jessie Stein’s dreamy melodicism and introspective words written as if a means of glassy-eyed escape from pain. In “Face” Stein ponders faith, intimacy, identity, singing “I wonder how true to life that I should be / Looking for nothing until I can speak.” Still, the beauty of Stein’s seductive, childlike coo as it floats over the music is what ultimately allows Animator to feel cathartic and full of hope.” – WNYC

In addition to the album stream, MTV Hive has a wonderful interview with Jon. They delve into his visual arts background and how it’s influenced the direction of his music!
“It’s always been fundamental to make it so that you don’t need the backstory and the information. I’d like for a listener to just be able to get with it regardless of any of that. I like the idea that it’s enjoyable without any of that but if you’re looking for it, there’s plenty of layers for you to get into.” – Jon

A Place To Bury Strangers head to the Metallica music festival, Orion Music & More, this weekend.

See all their upcoming tour dates HERE.
A Place To Bury Strangers share the second single off their new album, Worship. Titled “And I’m Up,” the single is something singer Oliver Ackermann calls “that classic 50′s vibe our parents grew up loving oh so much and then cramming down our throats through subliminal early life listening.”Stream “And I’m Up” below!
The track premiered earlier this morning on Consequence of Sound, who writes, “The New York noise-rockers took control of their latest record, not only recording and mixing it themselves, but actually building the tools used to do all that. You can hear how all that hard work paid off in the latest album track to be released, ‘And I’m Up.’” Read the full review HERE.
Worship is out June 24, but here’s a little secret: When you pre-order the album, you’ll receive an instant gratification code, which allows you to download the ENTIRE album before it’s released. Better yet? If you purchase the deluxe bundle, you’ll be entered to win a Death By Audio ‘Fuzz War’ effects pedal, make by Oliver Ackermann himself. YOU KNOW YOU WANT THAT PEDAL! Pre-orderHERE.
