A Place To Bury Strangers Muted
They will also headline this year's PsychFest in Austin, TX on Saturday March 15. The band is currently in the studio working on an as-yet untitled sophomore album. Release date is TBD.
"We are incredibly excited to sign with Mute," says frontman and guitarist Oliver Ackermann. "They have put out some of our favorite music over the years. I can't think of a label that better fosters experimentally creative music."
The Brooklyn based three-piece have earned their reputation as the "loudest band in New York" – Cops shut down their 2007 CMJ performance, and the band has been known to blow the power out of venues. Their sonically overdriven sound is no accident; it is a carefully cultivated entity, fostered by an unbridled passion that is evident in every live show they play and every recording they make.
