The sophomore album from A Place to Bury Strangers, Exploding Head, reflects one simple goal: to create the craziest, most f-ed-up recording ever.A Place to Bury Strangers are now poised to blow minds and speakers alike. Says London's NME: "The pleasure pain threshold has rarely been more blurred, but rock this ferociously soulful is only good for you if it hurts." During the Exploding Head recording process engineer Andy Smith (Paul Simon, David Bowie) took the band to "a whole other level" says Ackermann. "I love the interplay and contrasts between something that's pretty and something that's scary," he explains. "Taking listeners to different places - even in one song - is so important, whether it makes them cry or pissed off. If you listen closely, some of the riffs on this record are actually like Ramones songs or '60s bubblegum pop."
