APTBS REMIX “WINDSTORM” FOR SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS
A Place To Bury Strangers will release a new digital EP, I Lived My Life To Stand In The Shadow Of Your Heart, on June 22nd. The EP features a new track, “Girlfriend”, and remixes by Secret Machines, Cereal Spiller, and Broken Spindles.
A Place To Bury Strangers, who wrapped up a tour with The Big Pink in April, are on a West coast tour with Chicago band, Light Pollution. The LA Times says APTBS live is “Fierce enough to shake bones” and The Philadelphia Inquirer says, “Ackermann's trio always kills onstage.”
The A Place To Bury Strangers remix of “Windstorm”, the new single from fellow New York band School of Seven Bells, has started to descend on the online music scene with Pitchfork and Stereogum both highlighting the track. Listen to the remix HERE.
In other news, APTBS have recently taken part in two major tribute albums. On September 6th, War Child UK – a branch of an international charity for children affected by war – will release Repetition – A Tribute to David Bowie. A Place To Bury Strangers cover Bowie’s “Suffragette City” for the worthy cause that also features the likes of Duran Duran, MGMT, Vivian Girls, Chairlift, Carla Bruni, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and many more.
In addition, APTBS cover Roky Erickson’s “Tried to Hide” on The Psychedelic Sounds of The Sonic Cathedral: A Tribute To Roky Erickson And The 13th Floor Elevators, released June 7th. Accompanying APTBS on the album is Darker My Love, Dead Meadow, and Roky Erickson with the Black Angels.
A Place To Bury Strangers’ sophomore album “Exploding Head” was released on Mute October 6th 2009 and debuted at #1 Most Added at College Radio week of release. In their 4.5 star review of the album, Alternative Press says "Like Sonic Youth before them, the trio have perfected the fine balance of loud and quiet, the result being one of the finer melody-driven noise-rock records in recent memory." “Exploding Head” continues to rake in the praise, making year-end top-10 accolades from The Portable Infinite and a nomination for Best Band In New York from the New York Press.
