New York City feedback merchants A Place To Bury Strangers will release third album Worship next month. After 2009’s excellent Exploding Head and the solid teaser EP Onwards To The Wall earlier this year, APTBS are poised to take a significant leap forward.
Lead single “You Are The One” tones down the overall squall, but there’s still plenty of artfully placed shoegaze pedal pushing. Oliver Ackermann sounds like he can barely sing through a head cold, but his detached persona is a great counterpoint to the chaos around him.
The video is a little nsfw thanks to a bit of fleeting nudity and a baseball bat beatdown. Check it out via spin:
Worship arrives June 26th on Dead Oceans.
