HAND DRAWN DRACULA NXNE SHOWCASE
Called "New York City's loudest band" by The Village Voice, A Place To Bury Strangers are a dense and powerful update of the Jesus and Mary Chain or My Bloody Valentine for the 21st century. Far from being loud just for the sake of it, their sonic tendencies are instead a result of years of passionately and carefully cultivating their sound. Frontman Oliver Ackermann runs Death By Audio, a wildly unique guitar effects manufacturer. His clients vary from Kevin Shields to Trent Reznor and the Edge; and the pedals come with a "will destroy your equipment if not used correctly" warning, which is a pretty good indication of the band's sound itself. With this refreshing honesty and work ethic in place to back up their attempts at a genre-defining sound, another cliché is nearly brought to mind. We're all staring at the stars - it goes - but some of us are also paying a lot of attention to our pedalboards.
