A Place To Bury Strangers (aka APTBS) is a shoegaze/post-punk band from Brooklyn. It was formed in 2004 and is composed of three members: Olivier Ackermann (vocals), Robi Gonzalez (drums) and Dion Lunadon (bass).
First of all don’t rely on the appearance of the three members of APTBS. Behind their casual looks there is a band which is able to bring you to another place where you can easily lose yourself.
APTBS has already released 3 albums: A Place To Bury Strangers (2007), Exploding Head (2009) and Worship (2012). Throughout these albums they succeed in extracting the best of noise and experimental. They perfectly spread a dark and heavy atmosphere which will remind you of bands such as Sonic Youth or Skywave.
Thanks to A Place To Bury Strangers we discover that noise can be wonderfully beautiful.
