Album artwork for Onwards To The Wall by A Place To Bury Strangers

produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by a place to bury strangers themselves, this is the sound of a band in control of making out of control music. the 5 track 'onwards to the wall' packs every bit of the searing sonic maelstrom listeners have come to expect (nay, demand!) from a place to bury strangers. yet, the adroit songcraft that's always been there is brought more the fore, pop hooks are repurposed and more instantly recognizable. now joined by bassist dion lunadon, formerly of the d4, ackerman has found a crucial companion in pulling timeless melodies from their jet engine textures. standout 'so far away' takes all the pure pop perfection of the box tops' 'the letter' and shoots it through with a barely-harnessed dark energy and snarling propulsion. the title track carries a similar balance of classic, 60s-pop hooks and doomed-out vibes, employing a boy-girl vocal tradeoff that's at once both sexy and menacing. a handful of contemporary bands are currently exploring the new limits of loud. and here, a place to bury strangers proves that they have not only been leading that charge for some time now, but that they are also evolving and maturing on those front lines. 'onwards to the wall' is a fresh, complete artistic statement from a place to bury strangers. it's a new chapter, a prelude for what awaits us on the horizon. it is a taste of greatness to come. on dead oceans.
