A Place To Bury Strangers share the second single off their new album, Worship. Titled “And I’m Up,” the single is something singer Oliver Ackermann calls “that classic 50′s vibe our parents grew up loving oh so much and then cramming down our throats through subliminal early life listening.” Stream “And I’m Up” below!
The track premiered earlier this morning on Consequence of Sound, who writes, “The New York noise-rockers took control of their latest record, not only recording and mixing it themselves, but actually building the tools used to do all that. You can hear how all that hard work paid off in the latest album track to be released, ‘And I’m Up.’” Read the full review HERE.
Worship is out June 24, but here’s a little secret: When you pre-order the album, you’ll receive an instant gratification code, which allows you to download the ENTIRE album before it’s released. Better yet? If you purchase the deluxe bundle, you’ll be entered to win a Death By Audio ‘Fuzz War’ effects pedal, make by Oliver Ackermann himself. YOU KNOW YOU WANT THAT PEDAL! Pre-order HERE.

A Place To Bury Strangers release a new video for “You Are The One,” off their forthcoming album, Worship. The video premiered on SPIN earlier today. Directing duo Matt Moroz & Tracy Maurice deliver a twisted nightmare in this grindhouse-esque clip produced by Greencard Pictures. Shot on 16mm film, their dark, experimental style expertly mirrors the mood of APTBS’s track and elevates the music video to a cinematic noir thriller.
Moroz and Maurice’s creation recalls a 70s-era, B-movie that is definitley Not Safe For Work. The duo says, “We really loved the song. The video evoked something extremely dark, weird and disturbing.” In it, the viewer follows a mysterious figure as he viciously beats total strangers, leers at nubile young girls at an underground club, and initiates a blood-soaked make-out session. Watch above.
Starting today, you can pre-order A Place To Bury Strangers’ new album, Worship. They are offering a pretty sweet deluxe bundle just for you; it includes the album on limited edition (while supplies last) “blue death” vinyl and CD, 7″ vinyl edition of You Are the One / I Can Feel Your Heart Inside My Head, early gratification download code supplied for full album (redeemable on June 11th), a 17×22 poster featuring album artwork and finally, you’ll be entered to win a Death By Audio ‘Fuzz War’ effects pedal made by Oliver of APTBS.
In the midst of their European tour, A Place To Bury Strangers are hard at work. With plans to join This Will Destroy You for a summer tour, their days on the road seem to be never-ending. Oliver Ackermann recently found some time to sit down with Drowned In Sound for a loooong interview…
“Lots of things influenced the record. Every time I sit down and write a song I tend to reflect upon times from within my life. Not just times that have sucked in the past, but sometimes things kind of sucked while we were making the record. Horrible things happen and these are the moments when I feel more passionate to write something.”
The new album comes out June 26th and we’ve got pre-order information coming your way soon! Lastly, we’ve received quite a few unofficial videos from fans and decided to share some with you. Watch “You Are the One” above and head to YouTube for “Nothing Will Surprise Me.”
