New York's noisy trio A Place To Bury Strangers have a new video, this time for 'Ego Death', which is taken from their 9/10 rated 2009 LP - Exploding Head. In describing this particular track, Dom Gourlay used the phrase "the band's penchant for carving industrial dogma into elongated slabs of white noise...", a turn which I like greatly.
The video is a lot easier to watch with sunglasses on, I'll say that much. Or just dim the backlight on your screen because it's all mental on the high contrast. It's also - as ever - the sort of track which heightens the ever-present ringing in your ears. Some say this is a good thing.
Video directed by Spencer Bewley.
