TRANSFIXIATION OUT FEB. 17TH ON DEAD OCEANS


Just two weeks ago, A Place To Bury Strangers announced their new album, Transfixiation (out Feb. 17th on Dead Oceans), and shared the fantastic first single, "Straight." The album is a boldly experimental step forward for the band and the recorded sound comes closest to the intense level of its infamous live shows. Today, they're back with an excellent new video for "Straight," which was directed by Brook Linder. In the video, the signal of a television channel is hijacked and the viewer is launched into a nightmare of analog psychedelia and haunted pop culture imagery, as if the distortion reveals a sort of malevolent presence. The concept was influenced by Linder's childhood years spent trying to make out distorted HBO and strange urban legends like the Max Headroom signal intrusion of 1987. All the effects were dubbed to VHS, run through analog synthesizers and brought back to match the band's analog effected sound. A Place To Bury Strangers will tour extensively across the U.S. and Europe next year including a performance at Austin Psych Fest. A full list of tour dates is below.
