It's not long until we get a new release from A Place To Bury Strangers but as it gets ever closer the band have offered up a cut from Worship that's entitled "And I'm Up". It's a pretty slick and a little shoe-gaze in style and a great new listen from a band I already had a lot of respect for. See if you like it as much as I do down below.
Worship drops next week on the 11th of June in the UK and later in the month on the 26th everywhere else.
A Place to Bury Strangers have announced a brand new album set to follow up 2009's Exploding Head. It's due to hit stores on the 11th of June in the UK (26th Stateside) and is titled Worship. Before you get all hot under the collar about that you can get even more excited as they've offered up a the first song to feature on the release, "You Are the One". Wrap your ears around it below.
Next week, A Place To Bury Strangers will be releasing a brand new EP titled Onwards to the Wall, their first release in over three years. The five-track EP has been made available to stream in its entirety courtesy of The Hype Machine, so give it a listen below.
Onwards to the Wall is out on February 7th via Secretly Canadian.
A Place To Bury Strangers have offered some new visuals in the form of a photo montage video created by band member Oliver Ackermann. It's for their track "So Far Away" so enjoy the snap happy video at the top. Their new EP Onwards To The Wall is set to drop next month on the 7th of February via Dead Oceans.

We are counting down the hours until Shey, Rocko and I hop on our respective planes from our humble homes and hit the hip streets of Austin, TX for SXSW. While we are all n00bz to the pure mayhem and insanity that is SXSW, we think/hope we have appropriately prepped our livers, iCals, eardrums, etc. for the days ahead of us. Although it is hard to tell how our days in Austin will actually pan out, we have carefully combed through every party, panel and showcase and prepared the following agenda in case you care to follow along or even follow us around. Mind you, we all have a few bands here and there that aren't playing a specific party that we'll be checking out as well, but this is a pretty good idea of where to find us.
If you don't see something on our list that you think we should check out, please drop us a comment!
Here we go!

With a lovefest that could only have ignited courtesy of the internet, Some Kind of Awesome, Antiquiet, TwentyFourBit, Rock It Out! Blog and Consequence of Sound have joined forces under the moniker Axis of Audio with help from Knuckle Rumbler to throw an [unofficial] SXSW 2011 party of epically awesome proportions.
That's right, friends! If you'll be in Austin and want to catch the big event, mark your calendars for Saturday, March 19th 2011 from 12pm - 8pm at The Rumbler Lounge, located at 402 E. 6th Street. This party has been in the works for quite awhile and we think our hard work has really paid off.
We are jumping up and down in excitement to announce this ridiculously awesome lineup, which includes:
In addition to all of these insanely great bands, we'll also be giving away two pairs of passes to San Bernardino, CA’s Paid Dues Festival, which features P.O.S. and the highly anticipated reunion of Black Star.
