A Place To Bury Strangers’ new album, ’Transfixiation’, is out in just over a month on Dead Oceans and they’re releasing the f second single, ‘We’ve Come So Far’ on February 9th.
As I have before mentioned A Place To Bury Strangers in 2015 are arguably more charged and focused, any listen to ‘Transfixiation’ would confirms this, said to capture the energy of their live show and who are we to disagree. ‘We’ve Come So Far’ as guitarist/single Oliver Ackermann describing the new single explained “Sometimes I just want to shake people for feeling useless. There is so much potential and amazing things going on all around”. So for all the intensity and noise, there is still a positive message, delivered over tight pulsing bass, dislocated guitar, for most, easily enough umph to satisfy.
’We’ve Come So Far’ should be well received on all the usual formats, one of a few true highlights from their album, get ready for this. 8/10
Tour in Europe in March, April and May in support of ‘Transfixiation’.
