We are very proud to premiere the latest single and video from A Place To Bury Strangers, the brilliant ‘Chrome Shadow’. It arrives at your eyes and ears as part of the upcoming live Fuzz Club Session LP.
‘Chrome Shadow’, recorded as part of the band’s forthcoming LP, is a previously unreleased cut that’s quite the departure from the band’s usual racket. We hear the band move away from the razor-sharp guitars we know them for and instead we are hurled toward for a wall of lo-fi industrial post-punk, shoegaze-inspired sound.
The track feels like an evolution for the band with Lia, Ollie and Dion all hurdled around a drum-machine and four-track recorder that Ollie uses to manipulate everything through (naturally!). The video is a dirgey compliment to the sound and shows off their turn towards shoegaze and it’s naturally darkened path.
The live LP comes from the band’s recent tour of Europe. When the band were in London on their European tour last year in support of their latest album, Pinned, they went into the studio to lay down a live album with Fuzz Club Records. The resulting Fuzz Club Session LP will be a super limited vinyl-only release that sees the band storm through five tracks spanning their lengthy back-catalogue, as well as the new one ‘Chrome Shadow’.
Recorded live in one take, the session effortlessly showcases the band’s relentless power and energy of their live show in all its wonderful, deafening glory – they even brought their arsenal of strobes, projectors and smoke machines along too so it even looks the part and transports you to another world.
