Live Footage: A Place to Bury Strangers on Last Call with Carson Daly

Currently comprised of Oliver Ackermann (guitars and vocals), Dion Lunadon (bass) and Robi Gonzalez), the Brooklyn-based trio of A Place to Bury Strangers have developed a reputation for a moody, atmospheric wall of sound-influenced sound that possesses elements of psych rock, shoegaze and space rock and for arguably one of the most punishingly loud and chaotic live shows in contemporary music. Sonically speaking, the Brooklyn-based trio’s sound is deeply indebted to The Jesus and Mary Chain, and interestingly enough A Place to Bury Strangers opened for the influential TJAMC at this year’s FYF Fest in Los Angeles. And although I think Carson Daly and his show are awful — mainly because Carson Daly is awful — the NBC show shot some amazing footage of APTBS performing “Fill the Void” and “We’ve Come So Far.” Check it out and then check out their North American tour dates — they’re coming to a venue near you, and you need to catch them destroy stages and instruments.
