A Place To Bury Strangers announces most appropriately titled album ever!

on July 21, 2009, 4:40pm

Speakers and eardrums beware! A Place To Bury Strangers will soon be returning with a new album and by the sound of it, the loudest rock band known to man looks to be getting even louder.

“The original idea,” says vocalist/guitarist Oliver Ackermann, “was to create the craziest, most f’ed-up recording ever.”

On October 20th, we’ll hear what the New York outfit came up with when it releases Exploding Head via Mute Records. The followup to the band’s 2007 self-titled debut is billed as “43 mesmerizing minutes of pain as pleasure,” the result of “paranoid android pop,” “gorgeous gate-crashing melodies,” “Chinese water torture chords” and all the other over-the-top ways of describing sounds that are ear-bleedingly loud.

A Place to Bury Strangers will look to live up to its album’s title when the band hits the road this fall. The month-long trek will pair the noise rockers up with the likes of Dead Confederate, All the Saints and Darker My Love.

Cherish the silence while you have the chance.
