Brooklyn noise-rockers A Place To Bury Strangers were last in London as part of a European tour in support of 2018’s Pinned (released via Dead Oceans), they were dragged into the studio to record a live session LP for London-label Fuzz Club. Except for the videos that’ll slowly be released online, the Fuzz Club Session LP (due Feb 15th) will be a super limited vinyl-only release that sees the band storm through five tracks spanning their lengthy back-catalogue and one previously-unreleased cut.
Along with the news Fuzz Club and APTBS have just shared the first video from the session. The band’s full-throttle new take on ‘Punch Back’ sees them reconfigure it into a new version, with Lia Braswell’s rabid percussion and snarling vocals taking centre-stage. There’s a reason this lot were famously hailed as “the loudest band in NYC” and, recorded live in one take, the Fuzz Club Session LP perfectly captures the relentless power and energy of their live show in all it’s deafening glory – and, of course, they bought their arsenal of strobes, projectors and smoke machines along.

For over a decade Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers have been dealing in pure sonic destruction. Famously lauded as the loudest band in NYC, their thunderous noise-rock has seen them pick up a cult following and shatter many unsuspecting eardrums across the globe. With no release or live show similar to the last, APTBS have continually twisted their malevolent sonic assault into something not of this world.
