A Place to Bury Strangers have announced the Hologram EP, their first new record in three years. The EP marks a couple firsts for the Brooklyn band. It's the first record made with the new APTBS lineup that features John Fedowitz (bass) and Sandra Fedowitz (drums) of Ceremony East Coast, along with bandleader Oliver Ackermann. It's a bit of a reunion as John and Oliver played together in pre-APTBS group Skywave. Hologram is also the first APTBS release for Ackermann's new label Dedstrange.

The first single from Hologram is "End of the Night," which is a little bit of a new sound for the band. There are still plenty of noisy guitars but the ratatat, funky drumbeat and production is uncharted territory. “‘End Of The Night’ is the first track written in collaboration with either of the new band members," says Ollie. "John sent me the drum track and challenged me to write a song over it. It sort of came about as a strange stream of consciousness and unknowingly became about the end of the former band and the beginning of the new one. Each layer of the song stripping away the dead skin from the old and regrowing layer and layer of distortion of the new band. It’s great to be working again with John Fedowitz. I feel like our songwriting styles shot off in different directions from our earlier band Skywave only to come back to the table with different experiences to create something special again.”

You can watch the "End of the Night" video, and check out Hologram's artwork and tracklist, below. Hologram will be out July 16 via Dedstrange.

In other news, APTBS will host a screening of the Dedstrange showcase from this year's SXSW Online that features the first performance of the band's new lineup, as well as sets from Holy Fuck, Randy Randall (No Age), Paul Jacobs (Pottery), Data Animal and Jealous. You can watch that Friday, April 23 at 7 PM Eastern via the band's YouTube and Facebook.

The band have also announced 2022 European tour dates and those are listed below.
