You can’t go wrong with this double bill of visceral bands, sharp and dark in both name and sound. NYC’s A Place To Bury Strangers will take on the roads of Europe starting this month and then join Suicide Squeeze artists This Will Destroy You on a west coast tour this June.
This video by Secretly Jag for “So Far Away”, the single from A Place to Bury Strangers is a blooming hipstamatic flower. The washed out stop motion action follows the band on tour in a far away land (Europe) with beautiful faeries and mead, and strange architecture (one thing was leaning as if it’s about to fall over!). Oliver (Ackermann), the front man in a Romanian Taxi driver outfit (the moustache) made me confuse him for Eugene Hütz, which is exactly the kind of insight you came here to get from me.
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.
