New York’s A Place To Bury Strangers are an uncompromising noise rock power trio that create lush sounding, dense layers of atmospheric and harmonious noise that best resembles the like of The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Suicide, Sonic Youth, The Velvet Underground, and various other like minded genre defying cult artists.

Since their inception in 2001, their first show being in 2003, Oliver Ackermann remains the only consistent member from the original line up. Starting off on drums, Oliver now fronts the band as their guitarist and vocalist, whilst running his own guitar effects company and music venue, both titled Death By Audio.

The band have recorded two full length studio albums and countless EP’s, with their first three EP’s (Red, Blue, Green) having later been compiled and released as a self titled album’s worth of material.

After melting minds at sold out shows across the globe, not to mention playing every note worthy festival imaginable, two of which being All Tomorrows Parties and Primavera,  the boys have built up an incredible loyal hardcore fan base.

With a new rhythm section consisting of New Zealand’s Dion Lunadon (formally of D4) on bass and Robi Gonzalez on drums, Oliver has taken the post punk attack of the band  to the next logical level, and with undisputed critical acclaim, they’ve successfully has won over a legion of new fans.

In January 2013 A Place To Bury Strangers will finally return to Australian shores, they’ll also be hitting New Zealand for the very first time, where they’ll be playing the Auckland leg of the Laneway Festival.
