A Place To Bury Strangers release a new video for “You Are The One,” off their forthcoming album, Worship. The video premiered on SPIN earlier today. Directing duo Matt Moroz & Tracy Maurice deliver a twisted nightmare in this grindhouse-esque clip produced by Greencard Pictures. Shot on 16mm film, their dark, experimental style expertly mirrors the mood of APTBS’s track and elevates the music video to a cinematic noir thriller.
Moroz and Maurice’s creation recalls a 70s-era, B-movie that is definitley Not Safe For Work. The duo says, “We really loved the song. The video evoked something extremely dark, weird and disturbing.” In it, the viewer follows a mysterious figure as he viciously beats total strangers, leers at nubile young girls at an underground club, and initiates a blood-soaked make-out session. Watch above.
Starting today, you can pre-order A Place To Bury Strangers’ new album, Worship. They are offering a pretty sweet deluxe bundle just for you; it includes the album on limited edition (while supplies last) “blue death” vinyl and CD, 7″ vinyl edition of You Are the One / I Can Feel Your Heart Inside My Head, early gratification download code supplied for full album (redeemable on June 11th), a 17×22 poster featuring album artwork and finally, you’ll be entered to win a Death By Audio ‘Fuzz War’ effects pedal made by Oliver of APTBS.

Nurses share a new track today from their highly anticipated album, Dracula. The song, “Trying to Reach You” premiered this morning on Pitchfork’s Forkcast. Gentle piano over a vibey bass line complements shuffling and varied percussion that opens into a forest of instruments and layered vocals in a demonstration of what Pitchfork calls Nurses’ “avant-pop” sound. You can listen to the track here.

Vinyl and CD bundles are available and the instant download will include Dark Jordan Mixtape, a digital-only 9 track EP from the band, comprised of out-takes, home recordings and sound experiments.
