A Place to Bury Strangers on tour, added to Chapterhouse show, hosting a video contest & stuff
APTBS at Webster Hall (more by Ebru Yildiz)
Earplugs are now close-to-officially required for the previously discussed Chapterhouse show at LPR on 10/4, as A Place to Bury Strangers have been added to the already impressive lineup that includes support from Ulrich Schnauss and Soundpool. Tickets, if you haven't bought them already, are still available.
The show isn't the lone NYC date for APTBS either. The band will also play their native Death By Audio on 10/26 with Japandroids, as well as a Billboard showcase at Gramercy Theatre on November 3rd (no tickets for that yet).
APTBS is still touring off of their 2009 LP Exploding Head, which has spawned a new video directed by Ben Crook (mem Sian Alice Group) for "I Lived My Life To Stand In The Shadow of Your Heart". Check that out below, and make sure and check out the band's five song digital EP which also features the song as well as a new track, and remixes by Secret Machines, Cereal Spiller, and Broken Spindles. Dig on the Secret Machines remix for "I Lived My Life To Stand In The Shadow of Your Heart", as well as a cover of David Bowie's "Suffragette City" above.
Speaking of remixes, guitarist/vocalist Oliver Ackermann has been busy on the remix front as well, logging remixes for Maps' "Die Happy Die Smiling" and School Of Seven Bells' "Windstorm" in the recent past. Ackermann also has another remix due of Grinderman's "Worm Tamer" (out 11/22), in addition to a forthcoming remix for Holy Fuck.
The band is also hosting a contest for a video for "Deadbeat". Details on how to enter, tour dates and that "I Lived My Life To Stand In The Shadow of Your Heart" video are all below.
