A Place To Bury Strangers are following up 2012's 'Worship' with their brand new album 'Transfixiation'. The album captures the moment with new sounds and new ideas combined with a high level of detail; the pure finesse of 'Transfixiation' is something to be desired.
If you're after an album that sounds better the louder you play it then 'Transfixiation' is the one for you. The album delivers a pure, atmospheric sound that cannot be distorted no matter the volume. 'Transfixiation' is an experiment that has, in most cases, well and truly paid off.

It is safe to say that A Place To Bury Strangers are more of a EP band. 'Onwards To The Wall' is their seventh EP to date. During the course of the bands existence, they have only released three singles. The band and their team have to be applauded for this as with the state of today's music, A Place To Bury Strangers aren't really a singles kind of band. You can't see Chris Moyles playing 'So Far Away' on Radio One's breakfast show - although if Zane Lowe was covering for him, things might be different.
