A Place To Bury Strangers Announce One New Zealand Show

Thursday 11th June, 2015 7:59AM

As some clever folk correctly guessed yesterday, New York noise outfit A Place To Bury Strangers are heading back to New Zealand in September. The trio, who blew us away with their blistering set at Laneway Festival in 2013, will be on New Zealand soil for one show only which comes off the back of the release of their fourth studio album Transfixiation. Here are the details for their upcoming Auckland performance...

Underthefuckingradar presents ... from Brooklyn, New York


In 2013 A Place To Bury Strangers blew the roof off Auckland's Laneway Festival with a blistering set of melodic noise. In startling contrast to the twee, indie pop being bandied around the other stages, their electrifying set featured elements of chaotic danger, dramatic theatre, shards of glorious swirling feedback, and a flying bass, leaving a sonic imprint burnt into the memory of anyone who witnessed their first Auckland show.

The Brooklyn based trio features New Zealander Dion Lunadon (formerly of North Shore punk band Nothing At All! and of course The D4) on bass. Founding member Oliver Ackermann sets-the-controls-for-the-heart-of-the-sun on stunn guitar and a myriad of self built and designed pedals , with Robi Gonzalez (Okkervil River, Jubilee) on drums. They have traveled extensively through North, Central, and South America, South East Asia and Japan, Eastern, Central and Western Europe, Australia and all points in between.

Call it psychedelic-noise-space-rock ... but one thing for certain it R O C K s.

Oliver Ackeramnn says “I think that we are a psychedelic band. A lot of our music is based on moments of having some sort of psychedelic, out-of-body experience, or taking your mind to somewhere beyond where it normally is.”

Their new album Transfixation was released earlier this year on DeadOcean records. The band are touring constantly through 2015.

The Auckland show will be recorded by Radio NZ's Music 101.

Kings Arms - Auckland
Doors open at 8pm and APTBS will be on sharp at 9-30pm.
