A Place To Bury Strangers have announced their upcoming US tour with The Joy Formidable, kicking off on the West Coast in March. The tour will follow the Dead Oceans label release of APTBS’s Onwards To The Wall 5-song EP, out February 7th.

The hard-hitting, hard-working Brooklyn band has also just premiered their video for “So Far Away.” It’s one dreamt up by singer/guitarist Oliver Ackermann, which he created by assembling a collage of his personal photos taken since the band had their van and much of their merch and personal items stolen in Rome last December. The behind-the-scenes, color-saturated photos are all taken with the revered iPhone Hipstamatic app. Ackermann says, “Once I started importing photos and assembling them then I realized with a couple of the cool driving sequences that I shot I should shoot some things in an animation style. The story in the video is personal and reflective of our lives over the past year or so.”
