A Place To Bury Strangers destroy record presser

Band's song proves too loud for the equipment

A Place To Bury Strangers‘ forthcoming single, ‘To Fix The Gash In Your Head’/’Ocean’ has been delayed a week after the pressing plant broke down while making the 10-inch vinyl format of the single.

The single will now be released on May 12.

According to the band’s spokesperson the “red noise levels” – a reference to sounds that exceed the suggested volume levels – on the master tapes caused the pressing plant to malfunction.

The highly tipped newcomers have recently been tagged by some observers “The loudest band in New York“.
