A Place To Bury Strangers announce new line-up, new EP and 2022 tour

By April 20, 2021 Culture, News

Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers announce their new EP, ‘Hologram’ will be released on 16th July on founding member Oliver Ackermann’s label Dedstrange. ‘Hologram’ is the anticipated follow-up to 2018 ‘s ‘Pinned’ and will be capped by a world tour in early 2022.


In 2003, A Place To Bury Strangers emerged on the scene out of Ackermann’s psychotropic vision. Often cited as “the loudest band in New York,” the band is known for their vicious live performances overloaded with all-consuming visuals, experimental sonic warfare, and treacherous stage antics. 2021 welcomes a lineup change. Ackermann is joined by new members John Fedowitz (bass) and Sandra Fedowitz (drums) of Ceremony East Coast, cementing the most sensational version of the band to date. John and Oliver were childhood friends who had played in the legendary underground shoegaze band Skywave, crafting futuristic punk music together. This next phase is a sonic return to the band’s most raw and unhinged endeavours, pushed even further into a new chaotically apocalyptic incarnation.

The band have now shared ‘End Of The Night’, a track that buzzes with percussion and murky noise and synth, as reflected in the disorienting self-directed video. Oliver Ackermann elaborates: “‘End Of The Night’ is the first written in collaboration with either of the new band members. John sent me the drum track and challenged me to write a song over it. It sort of came about as a strange stream of consciousness and unknowingly became about the end of the former band and the beginning of the new one. Each layer of the song stripping away the dead skin from the old and regrowing layer and layer of distortion of the new band. It’s great to be working again with John Fedowitz. I feel like our songwriting styles shot off in different directions from our earlier band Skywave only to come back to the table with different experiences to create something special again.
