Formed in 2002, A Place To Bury Strangers, also commonly known as APTBS, consist of Oliver Ackermann (vocals, guitar), Dion Lunadon (bass, guitar) and Lia Simone Braswell (drums). Their music is often described as heavy, dense wall of sound-influenced instrumental rock. Their self-titled debut album earned them international media attention and an opening slot for Nine Inch Nails and MGMT.
The band has since release numerous EPs and three full-length records, the latest being 2015’s Transfixiation. Here’s a single off the album, “Straight”.
