Join DJ Hella Bent on Friday, August 10th @ 11:30AM when she airs her recent interview with Brooklyn based noise rock force of nature, A Place To Bury Strangers. Together they discuss the importance of DIY music venues, the addition of drummer/vocalist, Lia Simone Braswell, and tales from their recent U.S. tour.
For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury Strangers have become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous volume. They don’t write setlists. They frequently write new songs mid-set. They deliberately provoke and sabotage sound people in a variety of cruel yet innovative ways. They can and will always surprise you.
Pinned is their fifth full-length and an album that finds them converting difficult moments into some of their most urgent work to date. It’s their first since the 2016 election, and their first since the 2014 closing of Death By Audio, the beloved Brooklyn DIY space where Ackerman lived, worked, and created with complete freedom.
