WATCH: New Video for A Place To Bury Strangers’ “You Are The One,” “Worship” Pre-order Available Today

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.

Pre-order Worship from SC Distribution.

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.

You can listen to the track here.

Dracula is also available for the first time TODAY for pre-order from SC Distribution. Each pre-order comes with an instant download of the full album. 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.

The Donkeys Ride: Pre-Order Special, Massive US Tour, Release Party

The Donkeys — The Pride of San Diego — are about to release their finest record to date. Born with Stripes (released April 26 in the US) sheds a bit of  the golden SoCal twang of previous efforts and places to the fore the influence of some other Cali artists — notably Pavement and the folkier leanings of Beck. And with a pre-order special launched today, you can have the entire record for your first backyard BBQ of the year this weekend. Pre-order the album now, and you will receive an mp3 download of the entire record. If you’re one of the first 25 people to pre-order the record, you will receive a two free tickets for a show on The Donkeys massive U.S. tour when they visit your respective area. Hell, we’ll even get the dudes to give you a mid-set shout-out. Maybe buy you a shot (?!?). The lucky 25 will also receive a large poster featuring the killer Born with Stripes album art by badass illustrator Tony Millionaire, best known as creator of comics Maakies and Sock Monkey, as well as the Adult Swim show Drinky Cow. The throwback-psych album art contains several easter eggs alluding to various lyrics from the record. Think the art from Prince’s Around the World in a Day for the surfer set (See below). Truly a gem.

PRE-ORDER BORN WITH STRIPES

Before the national tour begins, The Donkeys have a hometown Born with Stripes record release blow-out planned for April 30 at San Diego’s Sushi Art. If you like rock music made by guitars, you should probably be there. Word has it there will be pinatas filled with booze (maybe in mini-bottle form, maybe just loose liquid). See all upcoming tour dates HERE.
