Noise rock band A Place To Bury Strangers share the video for their new single, “My Head Is Bleeding,” from their upcoming album, See Through You.
The video is as stark and fierce as the track and features shifting dark visuals of the band playing juxtaposed with a woman driving, seemingly searching for something. The all-encompassing feeling of unease and angst is palpable, striking, and fitting for the song.
Post-punk revivalists A Place To Bury Strangers have always been a band unafraid to experiment and push boundaries with hot-blooded guitar and synth-driven anthems. See Through You is shaping up to be their most ambitious album yet, and has already received enormous critical acclaim.
The band is known for its live shows which are loud, intense, and chaotic, and See Through You is no exception. The upcoming album is sure to be one of the most talked-about albums of the year for those who crave something visceral and new.
In “My Head is Bleeding,” Oliver Ackermann, the lead vocalist, extends a desperate plea for sanity to whichever metaphysical entity might be listening. “This song is about internally begging to a God when you might not necessarily believe in one,” says Ackermann. “It’s that moment where there’s just a sliver of hope that anything in your head might connect you with the Universe and actually make a change.” Ackermann explained.
A Place To Bury Strangers is known for their 80s-esque post-punk sound. The band has been together since 2003 and has released six studio albums. Check out MXDWN’s album review of See Through You here.
The vinyl edition of the album is out today via Dedstrange. You can listen to “My Head is Bleeding” below.
