Watch the new music video “And I’m Up” from A Place To Bury Stangers

Oliver Ackermann, lead singer and guitarist for A Place To Bury Strangers, is quite the creative mind.  His explorations into sound and distortion have created the fuzz-driven music of A Place To Bury Strangers.  But it was the mind of animator Karl Ackermann, brother of Oliver, who put this trippy visual take on “And I’m Up” together.  Check out the beauty in the carnage after the jump.

Dion Lunadon of A Place To Bury Strangers talks to Rabbits (An Interview & Exclusive Podcast)

Last week A Place To Bury Strangers released their third LP Worship to the waiting world.  The band’s best album and work to date, Worship is a continuously rewarding journey that is relentless in its pursuit to frighten the senses and lure the listener into its dark world.  There is something noticeably different on this album that brings the band to new heights, and you quickly start to realize that its the work of bassist Dion Lunadon.  We caught up with Dion for an interview and podcast that digs deep into Worship and his role in the band, and also touches on some of the lighter aspects of being a world-traveling musician.
