A Place To Bury Strangers announce a 2022 North American headline tour, and share the new video for single ‘In My Hive‘, from their new EP, Hologram, out now on Dedstrange. The new dates follow a headline show at Bowery Ballroom in New York City on September 15th, a run with Future Islands, and a stop at Levitation Festival in Austin, TX. Tickets for 2022 can be found below.

The ‘In My Hive‘ video, directed by and starring Manon Aulon Elphick, Niicolé and Dedstrange labelmates Data Animal, is a ghoulish grindhouse tale of revenge served raw. Filmed in gritty wide-angle closeups, this claustrophobic tale of murder, magic, and mayhem is a gothic five-finger-filet deathmatch for the senses. Preparing for a fight, pondering the potential in the sharpness of a knife, glazed over eyes, molten metal poured into the mouths of to-be zombie bandmates, overwhelming flashing lights, all seen through a close-up psychedelic lense.

“‘In My Hive’ is about how I’ve let myself get taken advantage of by other people because I just didn’t care at the time, but it definitely has come back to haunt me,” says the A Place To Bury Strangers’ Oliver Ackermann. “It can be tiring to deal with these emotions but it’s best to think about what is going on and work through it.”

In My Hive” starts with this initial melancholic dark ambiance, this blistering drum roll pounds into the center of the creation and abruptly moves the ensemble in its fierce direction. The sweeping yet moody vocals join the intense atmosphere and add this intimate aspect to the mammoth creation. The experimental elements which thrive amongst the transitions suddenly evolve to display the most crucial tones of this gritty ensemble.

This grueling intensity continues to simmer throughout the mighty release and overcomes this ardent projection whilst the focus of the complex soundscape that multiplies in size will keep the audience truly fixated on this colossal journey. Angular attributes dazzle if not providing something slightly atrocious in terms of the immersive tonality, yet this new vision is completely outstanding. It provides this ample arrangement that lets the power of this act thrive. A Place To Bury Strangers lure the audience into the dark ominous and hellish landscape they have built and the audience will have no choice but to embrace the weight of this release whilst fixated from start to finish.

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 endeavors, pushed even further into a new chaotically apocalyptic incarnation.
