A Place To Bury Strangers: Transfixiation

APTBSTransfixiationA PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD AND TOUR // TRANSFIXIATION OUT 16 FEBRUARY 2015 ON DEAD OCEANS

Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers have announced their fourth record, Transfixiation, which will see release on February 16th via Dead Oceans. A product of two years of constant touring and recording since the release of 2012’s Worship, Transfixiation is a boldly experimental step forward.  Rather than fixate on precious recording techniques and minute details, the members of the group – guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, bassist Dion Lunadon, and hard-hitting drummer Robi Gonzalez — trusted their instincts and tried to keep things as pure as possible. If that meant a mess of cross-contaminated microphones and mud-caked mistakes, so be it. Music is much more exhilarating when it’s unpredictable, and from the tortured straight-to-tape transmission of “I Will Die” and molten funk melodies of “Straight” (which the band have shared as their first single) to the violent guitar spasms, cannon-like drums and not-so-idle threats of “Deeper,” this is very much an unpredictable record. Gonzalez makes his recording debut with the band here and he’s helped push the band’s recorded sound closer to the intense level of its infamous live shows.
