A Place to Bury Strangers release EP for the coming Mayan apocalypse

Ugggggh, is it really time to start thinking about February 2012 already? Say it ain’t SNOW! Fortunately, we’ve got Valentine’s Day, the coming destruction of the world as we know it, and a new EP from A Place to Bury Strangers to look forward to. Sure, sure, most non-Lars Von Trier people’s hearts don’t start tap dancing at the mention of that chocolate holiday or the apocalypse, but A Place to Bury Strangers? Who can argue with that?

According to a press release, the New York-based sonic warriors “produced, engineered, mixed and mastered” said new EP, Onwards to the Wall, without outside help. (This is basically the music-world equivalent of those dinosaur frogs or whatever in Jurassic Park who can breed with themselves.) Onwards will drop February 7 on Dead Oceans. For those who can’t wait and for those who are just worried about our impending Mayan apocalypse, Pitchfork has posted a track from the EP, titled “So Far Away.”

Onwards to the Wall tracklisting:

01. I Lost You
02. So Far Away
03. Onwards to the Wall
04. Nothing Will Surprise Me
05. Drill It Up
