A Place to Bury Strangers - "Change Your God"

Photo by Devon Bristol Shaw

A Place to Bury Strangers have been around for over twenty years now, and they keep releasing new and exciting music. The band's latest single, "Change Your God," has all of the noise and explosive qualities of their earlier releases, along with the electronic experimentations the band has been engaging in lately. The bass line gives the song a sound that almost demands you dance to it despite all of the chaos storming around it. The song is a mixture of early industrial, noise rock, and shoegaze, sometimes all at once and others almost individually. "Change Your God" is chaos, but controlled chaos... even if just barely.

Frontman Oliver Ackerman says of the songs on the band's new 7" series:

"When looking back at the recordings that were done around the time of See Through You, there were a bunch of great tracks that just captured life back then and really had something incredible going on. Even though they are a bit raw and a bit personal, I thought it would be a mistake if they didn't come out. I thought it would be best to go back to my roots and put out a series of 7-inches the way A Place To Bury Strangers started. That strange weird format where the tracks each speak for themselves; no album context to muddy the water. These tracks are such a contrast to the way I am feeling now and the current songs we've been working on so slip back into this moment in time.”
