A Place To Bury Strangers have announced the release of their new album Worship which will be out June 26 (June 11 in the UK/EU) via Dead Oceans. Listen to the first track from the LP, ‘You Are The One’ below.
Place To Bury Strangers’ Oliver Ackermann (vocals / guitars / Death by Audio effects genius) and Dion Lunadon (bassist) continue what began with their last EP, Onwards to the Wall, by drawing on krautrock, dream-pop, and 80s goth without ever losing the core APTBS sound.
“This album was written, recorded, mixed and mastered by A Place To Bury Strangers. It is our vision of what our music should sound like in 2012, not someone else’s interpretation,” says Lunadon. “Every sound on the album is made by us and our tools; tools created by us, used on no other recordings, and purposefully built for this project. This is real. Some of it is the band being in complete control — bending, shaping and building the songs and the sounds. Other parts are the band relinquishing control and letting the songs and sounds take over and produce themselves. We are not trying to reinvent ourselves, but simply push ourselves further in all aspects of our music.”
“We made this, we recorded this, we did everything,” adds Ackermann. “Yes, we chose to do this and no, we didn’t have to but we think it is pretty cool. No producer made us. We didn’t go to school for any of this and we don’t have time for tutorials. We invented this and now we are sharing it with you.”
