A Place to Bury Strangers Sign to Dead Oceans, Prep New EP for 2012
New York noisegazers A Place to Bury Strangers are restless souls. Just a couple of years ago, the band bounced from smaller imprint Killer Pimp to Mute Records for their Exploding Head LP, but the band apparently doesn't like to stay in one place for too long. The group have just announced they've signed to another imprint, New York's Dead Oceans (the Luyas, Akron/Family).

A press release explains that the trio have inked with the imprint and will soon be dishing the details on a new EP to be released sometime in 2012. The label was impressed with the outfit's live aesthetic, which aside from delivering powerfully moody '80s-influenced tunes can get a little chaotic. Dead Oceans points to a recent cruise show that had the band huck their plugged-in amps overboard as proof of their "ferocious live performances."

"I've been enamored with A Place to Bury Strangers since I first heard their debut album," label co-founder Phil Walford said in a statement. "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."

The band have recently undergone changes, adding the D4 bass player Dion Lunadon to the lineup, and are currently prepping five new songs for the as-yet-untitled EP. A tracklisting has yet to be delivered, but the band hinted that those details, as well as info on an upcoming tour, will be revealed in the near future.
