“Some of the most inventive and intelligent noise rock since the turn of the century.” – The Line of Best Fit
It’s almost become a cliché now: “the loudest band in New York.” So renowned is the reputation of A Place to Bury Strangers’ wall-of-sound assault that the Brooklyn trio even sell their own branded earplugs on tour. But if you’ve ever found yourself enveloped in the synesthetic chaos that is their live show, you’ll find they more than live up to the moniker. And if you haven’t, well, you’re in for a treat.
That’s because A Place to Bury Strangers’ live show is one of the best in the world. These three are merchants of sensory overload, claiming every inch of space for their kaleidoscopic orgy of light and sound.
Make no mistake – APTBS’ legacy extends far beyond their notoriety of as a live act. In their decade-plus career, APBTS emerged as one of the cornerstones of New York’s post-millennial indie rock landscape, inflecting the post-punk revivalist tendencies of their peers with an ever-mutating sonic sensibility founded on fucked-up distortion, shimmering reverb and dark grooves. The three-piece remain firmly rooted at the heart of modern DIY, channeling punk rock spirit through both their bombastic sound and fiercely self-sufficient practice.
Frontman Oliver Ackermann was integral to the now legendary defunct underground performance space Death by Audio that also played host to his boutique effects pedal company of the same name, and the band’s endless touring schedule has ensured their reputation for volume spans not the five boroughs but the entire globe.
A Place to Bury Strangers are everything a modern rock band should be: unpredictable and chaotic, with a live show that leaves you fucking slayed. Don’t forget your earplugs.
