NME ran a story yesterday announcing that A Place To Bury Strangers have a new EP coming up called Ego Death and it "...is the follow-up to 2009's Exploding Head and was recorded in Brooklyn."
As exciting as that sounds, it's a bit misleading. 'Ego Death' is track 6 on Exploding Head as well as the new single. Factual error aside, the Ego Death EP does exist. It's available digitally right now here in the States on iTunes and there is a 12" on the way. Or at least I hope it's on the way. I caught them in L.A. with The Big Pink a couple weeks back and my eagle eye didn't spot this at the merch table.
Either way the tracklist is:
1. Ego Death (Radio Edit)
2. It's a Fast Driving Raveup With a Place to Bury Strangers
3. Ego Death (Figo Remix)
4. Exploding Head (RX Dub Remix)
5. Ego Death (Allen Blickle of Baroness Remix)
A Place to Bury Strangers - 'Ego Death':
Exploding Head was one of the better records released last year that probably slipped right by you. Highly recommended live band as well.
Check upcoming tour dates here.
Of course we can all hope that the NME is correct and there is an EP of all new material on its way.
