A Place To Bury Strangers' new single, So Far Away, is the lead track taken from their upcoming EP, Onwards To The Wall, which will be released on February 6th through Dead Oceans. The band has also announced a UK tour, which will take place throughout May 2012.
Formed in 2001 in New York, A Place To Bury Strangers comprises Oliver Ackermann (guitar/vocals), Dion Lunadon (bass guitar) and Jay Space (drums). The band have been frequently called 'New York's loudest band'. They released three EPs in 2006, entitled Red; Blue and Green respectively.
Their debut eponymous studio album was released in 2007, featuring songs from previous EPs. It received positive reviews, as did their second album, Exploding Head, which was released in 2009. A Place To Bury Strangers announced in February 2011 that they were going to start work on their third studio album.
Onwards To The Wall was produced and engineered by the band themselves. The video for the track consists solely of photos that were run through the popular iPhone app Instagram, which gives your pictures retro feel to them.
