A Place to Bury Strangers has signed to the experimental label Dead Oceans, and will release a new EP of five songs in 2012, according to Brooklyn Vegan.
"I've been enamored with A Place to Bury Strangers since I first heard their debut album. Their live shows have rattled me time and time again. It is not often you get to work with a band that you've been closely following for years, and we are honored to be a part of their new chapter. Wait until you hear what comes next," said label co-founder Phil Waldorf.
A Place to Bury Strangers makes dark, noisy music that also invokes sounds of noise pop and and even shoegaze. It's kind of like they can't decide to be about the light or the dark, so they do both and spend the best moments of their music transposing between the two sides. The band is set to be a part of the Dead Oceans showcase at the CMJ Marathon this month.
