APTBS will be playing the awesome blog I Guess I'm Floating's 5th anniversary party at Glasslands on Saturday January 29th at midnight. The cap there is 200 and we're going to have a small guest list so if you want you or your friends to come you should send them this link. It is going to sell out fast:
The lineup is:
8 PM Dreamers of the Ghetto
9 PM Arms
10 PM Guards
11 PM Caveman
12 am A Place to Bury Strangers
1 am Beach Fossils
This is one of the best bills of the year and we're thrilled to be a part of it. Their next NYC show will be at Death By Audio on Saturday April 2 with Jeff the Brotherhood!
Again, thank you all for the money you donated to help the band and our crew replace their clothing/personal belongings, cancelled shows, stolen merch money, etc. Video Director Thomas Smith took it one step further and filmed this incredible video for the APTBS remix of Holy Fuck's Red Lights. It debuted on Pitchfork's Music Blog, Altered Zones on Friday and has since gone completely viral. Thanks Thomas! You can watch it here:
My final word on this is that I find it incredibly sad that our driver Goz was put out of business by this theft. Goz, thank you for three years of being our driver, tour manager and most importantly our friend and tour guide. We will miss you deeply!
And finally, I'm incredibly excited to announce that A Place to Bury Strangers will be touring to SXSW and back with fellow Keplerites Hooray for Earth, whose new album will be dropping May 10 on Dovecote Records. You can better well bet that I'm going on this whole tour. Its going to be sick!
