A Place to Bury Strangers Explodes Heads

Brooklyn-based A Place to Bury Strangers will continue its sonic assault on the world this fall with the release of a second full-length and a massive North American tour. Exploding Head, arriving from Mute on October 6, is the result of the band attempting to create "the craziest, most fucked-up recording ever," and with shades of heavier My Bloody Valentine and Steve Albini projects sneaking into the group's sound, it's fair to say that they have succeeded. Coming from a slew of successful dates at Coachella, SXSW, and the Siren Festival at New York's Coney Island, the lauded trio is spending the rest of the summer touring Europe, then continuing on to the U.S. and Canada in early October. With Jay Ackerman's rack of custom-made guitar pedals, Jay Space's machine-gun drumming, and Jono MOFO's rollicking bass, it is certain that one of the loudest groups in the world will continue to blow out the power wherever they go.

Exploding Head comes out October 6, 2009, on Mute.

Thomas Rees should do a better job of fact checking his writing. The guitar players name is Oliver Ackermann.
