New A Place To Bury Strangers album Worship: 6/06/12

 

Above is the new “single” from NY’s A Place to Bury Stranger’s forthcoming album Worpship, out June 6th on the Dead Oceans record label. If you are unfamiliar with the band they are, simply put, amazing. Especially live. I saw them at LA’s Spaceland in 2010 (review HERE) and it is not an exaggeration to say by the mind-blowing fury of the finale I honestly thought I had witnessed the opening of a portal to another dimension; a dimension composed entirely of the wonderfully lush and often hallucinatory sonics front man Oliver Ackermann produces with his custom-built effects pedals (along with some very healthy strobe action). Ackermann is the guy behind Death by Audio. Click the link and check out their website – if you are a guitar player you’ll drool.

Worship will be the first full-length to the amazing Exploding Head, released in 2009 by Mute Records (an e.p. entitled Onward to the Wall was released by Dead Oceans this past Feb) The band is touring to support the new album and you can link to their tumblr below to check for dates in your area. I strongly advise going to see them. Strongly.

Because I am so psyched about this here’s the track that made me an instant fanatic. A little Bauhaus, a little My Bloody Valentine and a lot noisy, just the way I like it.
