Biography

Brooklyn, New York, United States (2003 – present)

A Place to Bury Strangers are a comprised of Oliver Ackermann (guitar / vocals), Dion Lunadon (bass) and Robi Gonzalez (drums). The band play a heavy, atmospheric wall of sound-influenced blend of , and .

A Place to Bury Strangers was formed in 2002 by David Goffan and Tim Gregorio. Current frontman and guitarist Oliver Ackermann had moved to Brooklyn, New York, United States, following the disbanding of his previous group, Skywave to join the group and become the primary songwriter after the departure of Goffan. They played their first show at Luxx in Brooklyn in 2003. Jay Space and Jono Mofo, both from the New York City-based band MOFO, joined the band when Tim Gregorio left. In 2006, APTBS handmade three different untitled EPs with different color schemes; these later become known as the Red, Blue and Green EPs.

In 2006, the band gained some acclaim following its Webster Hall performance with The Brian Jonestown Massacre. The band returned to Webster Hall in 2007 to play with one of their major influences, The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Throughout these formative years, the band’s live shows became increasingly chaotic which earned them the title of New York City’s “loudest band” from various indie reviewers and bloggers, as well as “the most ear-shatteringly loud garage/shoegaze band you’ll ever hear” by The Washington Post. The New York Times applauded their revival of “the ominous, feedback-drenched drones of the 1980s”.

    Предыдущие альбомы гораздо "громче" и в них больше драйва, и энергии , того, чего и ждут от "самой громкой группы Нью-Йорка" , А этот может и не так уж и плох, но угареть не с чего, как раньше с той же "It's nothing" хотя фиг знает, первый раз слушаю. Но еще раз слушать особого желания нет=\\

    on a first listen, it's noisy, distorted, dissonant. no hooks and bangers though, so I'll stick to previous stuff , I guess ;/

    why can't more bands be as innards-vibratingly loud as these guys? even on album it sounds like all their equipment is about two seconds away from just bursting the fuck into flames [3]
