A Place to Bury Strangers Prep New LP, Tour, Get in Touch with their Collective Inner Trekkie

New York's blog-appointed "loudest band" is back in the studio and getting ready to hit the road. No, not Swans. I'm talking about this generation's "loudest band" and indie media darling, A Place to Bury Strangers. Although the Brooklyn trio may not actually make you puke from their sound levels in the grand tradition of "loudness" started by their predecessors, (and who really wants that anyway?), they do deliver on the drone, so earplugs are definitely required. The band is currently working on the follow-up to their self-titled debut and recently finished shooting the video for that album's third single, "My Weakness." And get this: according to a press release, "The desert portions of the video were shot in Vasquez Rocks where Star Trek was frequently filmed." STAR TREK PEOPLE, STAR TREK!! And also, according to Wikipedia, episodes of Lassie and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, in which, "due to a life support malfunction, Buck is accidentally frozen for 504 years before the derelict spacecraft is discovered in the year 2491." Surely this video will be magical.

A Place to Bury Strangers will also be making their first-ever Coachella appearance in April and touring the UK and the EU in support of their single "Missing You," available on Rocket Girl
