A Place To Bury Strangers and Ceremony

A Place To Bury Strangers and Ceremony contribute to the first 7″ in Famous Class’ LAMC series

The Brooklyn label preps new releases for Less Artist More Condos 7″ series, all digital proceeds go to charity in honor of Ariel Panero.

In loving memory of their dear friend and label partner, the late Ariel Panero, the Brooklyn-based label
Famous Class announces the first volume of their upcoming LAMC split 7″ series. The series gets its name from the epic Less Artists More Condos concerts that Ariel threw, showcasing amazing bands in some strange and unique venues. Ariel’s driving force was a desire to get the bands he believed in the recognition he felt they deserved. This series simply tries to honor that idea.

For each LAMC split 7” Famous Class asked one of their favorite bands to provide them with an unreleased track for the A-side. They were then asked to pick their favorite emerging artist to provide a track for the B-side. Like how Ariel’s LAMC shows introduced New Yorkers to bands they might not have otherwise discovered – Famous Class hope that this series will do the same.

The series kicks off on April 10th with a split from A Place to Bury Strangers and Ceremony. The APTBS track sounds like nothing else the band has done before getting into some very dreamy and poppy territory (a la New Order), while the flipside from Ceremony delivers the darkness with layers of guitar squall and rhythmic drive. The tracks will also be available on the FAMOUS CLASS bandcamp page with 100% of the proceeds going to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music.

There are six of these bad boys coming before the end of the year and the acts participating are going to
be crazy – stay tuned from more details as they come.
