A Place To Bury Strangers - "We've Come So Far"

A Place To Bury Strangers - "We've Come So Far"

Sounds Like:

Eardrum cracking missives from the midnight hour on WHLL, the ONLY station that broadcasts to the second AND fifth circle of the greater Helltropolitan area; Joy Division by way of Ministry (or possibly Ministry by way of Joy Division); Jesus and Mary Chain on ‘roids.

Why You Should Care:

We first encountered NYC’s A Place To Bury Strangers back in 2012 opening for the Joy Formidable we saw a decidedly less aggressive but considerably more innovative take on industrial shoegaze, and at that time the only appropriate response was “HO-LEE-SHIT!” Smoke machines, glaring lights and a speaker cabinet set center stage where a front man would all but scream “strap in motherfuckers” and if you didn’t, it’s not clear how you survived that pummeling assault of sight, sound, and aggressively sophisticated rock and roll.
