A Place To Bury Strangers return this month with new album ‘Worship‘. The New York feedback junkies deliver an uncompromising slab of shoegaze guitars, dark sounds and deafening whistles.
Lead singer and guitarist Oliver Ackerman is officially joined by bassist Dion Lunadon, formerly of The D4, whose input helped to developing and reigning in ideas that would become the foundations of this album
To put it in the band’s words “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.”
Basically not something you’ll be playing to fall asleep to.
‘Worship‘ is out June 26 on Dead Oceans
