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
