A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS
SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘I MIGHT HAVE’

‘HOLOGRAM’ EP OUT ON 16 JULY VIA DEDSTRANGE RECORDS

UK/EUROPEAN TOUR 2022

A Place To Bury Strangers share new single/video ‘I Might Have’ from their forthcoming Hologram EP out 16 July onfounding member Oliver Ackermann’s label Dedstrange. Following lead single End Of The Night‘, ‘I Might Have’ is a fuzz-soaked sonic disaster in the best possible way.

Past reflections collide with the brutality of a disintegrating world, stories of personal trauma, acceptance, and human failings emerge from the rubble of noise and destitute motorik rhythms. This is A Place To Bury Strangers at its most honest and unfiltered. Hologram serves as an abstract mirror to the moment we live in and ‘I Might Have’ smashes that mirror into a thousand pieces. 

 “‘I Might Have’ is about the insecurities of life and growing up and when you just have to turn around and say ‘F*ck it,’” says Ackermann. “Life sucks so we may as well have a good time.

The accompanying video visualizes this mentality as it shows the band raucously hanging out together in New York City.

This grueling intensity overcomes this ardent projection. Chaos weaves through the fuzz enriched atmosphere rapidly building upon that power and the insatiable energy which moves this arrangement. “I Might Have” carries such aggression within its quick-paced infliction, its brooding angst bubbling to the surface and ready to burst at any moment and its direct drive. Raw lyrics sit fiercely amongst the consuming and mighty expressive soundscape.

But this attitude that we embrace throughout the raucous release, emitting from the vocal notes and the lyrics, it’s a real sense of acceptance, it is what it is, the lyrics themselves and its delivery challenges the audience to either accept this way or leave. A Place To Bury Strangers has mastered the ultimate rebellious hit.

In 2003, A Place To Bury Strangers emerged on the scene out of Ackermann’s psychotropic vision. 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.
