A Place To Bury Strangers is more than ready for their new album, “Transfixiation,” to be released, and guitarist/vocalist Oliver Ackermann explains why their second single, “We’ve Come So Far,” is so extraordinary.
Says Ackermann, “The lyrics were written by themselves. The meaning is absolute truth. Life is super intense and fucked up so even accomplishing anything is a huge feat. We should all be proud of that. When we have worked extremely hard for something for so long it is just amazing to look back on it all. Sometimes I just want to shake people for feeling useless. There is so much potential and amazing things going on all around. Help make something great for us all to enjoy. ‘We’ve Come So Far’ has an endless building feeling which mimics life.”
Listen to their latest single, “We’ve Come So Far.” The band will be joined on tour from Feb. 17 to May 10 by Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Creepoid and others.
“Transfixiation” will be out on Dead Oceans on Feb. 17.
