A Place To Bury Strangers and The Big Pink will hit the road on a North American tour March 10th, 2010 in San Francisco. The tour sees the bands hitting select U.S. and Canadian cities before heading back to the west coast to end the tour April 15th, 2010 in San Diego. The kindred bands have been neighbors on many of 2009’s year end best of lists and The Big Pink proudly uses APTBS frontman Oliver Ackermann’s Death By Audio pedals.

A Place To Bury Strangers’ sophomore album “Exploding Head” was released on Mute October 6th, 2009 and debuted at #1 Most Added at College Radio week of release. In their 4.5 star review of the album, Alternative Press says "Like Sonic Youth before them, the trio have perfected the fine balance of loud and quiet, the result being one of the finer melody-driven noise-rock records in recent memory." “Exploding Head” continues to rake in the praise, making a nomination for Best Band In New York from the New York Press.

And the Philly Daily News writes of their live show; "Foot pedals lined the stage, lending the band their signature mix of blissed-out shoegaze and dramatic new wave. The band barely spoke, but poured their passion into the tunes, with front man Oliver Ackermann hunched over his guitar like an animal, swinging his arms wildly. His vocals—when audible—sounded a bit like Ian Curtis, and the whole thing—when viewed primarily in flashes of strobe light—seemed overwhelming and surreal. Welcome to an alternate reality. Welcome to APTBS."

A Place To Bury Strangers are Oliver Ackermann (vocals/guitar), Jono MOFO (bass) and Jay Space (drums). They release “Keep Slipping Away,” the second single from “Exploding Head” December 7th, 2009. Stay tuned to Myspace this weekend for the “Keep Slipping Away” video premiere!
