A Place to Bury Strangers announce their new EP Hologram coming July 16, 2021 on Dedstrange

A Place to Bury Strangers Debut New Lineup feat. Ceremony East Coast

Hologram (out July 16, 2021) is the highly anticipated new EP from Brooklyn post-punk legends A Place To Bury Strangers and the debut of the band’s new lineup featuring John Fedowitz (bass) and Sandra Fedowitz (drums) of Ceremony East Coast. It is the first A Place to Bury Strangers release on frontman Oliver Ackermann’s new record label, Dedstrange.

Oliver and John are childhood friends who previously crafted futuristic punk music in the revered underground shoegaze band Skywave, and with Sandra Fedowitz on the drum throne, the new phase of A Place To Bury Strangers represents the band’s ultimate form—and the most sensational lineup to date.  Tour dates are currently in the works for 2022.

The five songs on Hologram, written and recorded in isolation by Oliver Ackermann during the still ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent societal collapse, are a return to the band’s rawest, most volatile, and intimate sound.

Lead single “End of the Night” is a “sonic story of betrayal and friendships destroyed,” says Ackermann. With warped, fuzzed-out guitars swept up in a swirling cacophony of controlled chaos anchored by faraway electronic percussion and double-time drumming, “End of the Night” hurts so good like the fading memory of the morning after 4am last call. “It’s an abstract mirror to the futuristic and disturbing world we live in,” Ackermann says.

 “End Of The Night is also the first song written in collaboration with either of the new band members. John sent me the drum track and challenged me to write a song over it. It sort of came about as a strange stream of consciousness and unknowingly became about the end of the former band and the beginning of the new one. Each layer of the song stripping away the dead skin from the old and regrowing layer and layer of distortion of the new band
