A Place To Bury Strangers are gearing up for the release of their first ‘official’ EP, currently being recorded at a studio in Brooklyn.
Speaking to NME.COM, drummer Jay Space revealed the band have been working on five new songs with producer John O’Mahoney, who is dividing his time between A Place To Bury Strangers and a certain Los Angeles rock band.
Space said: “He’s engineering the new Guns N’ Roses record in the midst of doing ours, so he’s going back and forth from LA to New York.
Space also admitted the band are in talks to release a 7” via Fucking Brilliant, the label owned by their friend Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
He said of the potential collaboration: “He’s been saying he wants to do it for six months to a year, but all our talks have been in bars so far.“
Despite three previously self-released EPs, this will be the band’s first ‘official’ EP to be made widely available.
A Place To Bury Strangers will play three New York shows this month, before heading to Austin for South By Southwest.
The dates are:
New York, NY Pianos (February 17)
New York, NY Hiro Ballroom (22)
New York, NY Cake Shop (27)
Austin, TX SXSW Blom Studios (March 16)
Austin, TX SXSW Ruta Maya (16)
