We've had something of a soft spot for A Place To Bury Strangers here at DiS ever since their explosive debut landed in our midst eight years ago. Often compared to the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails and The Jesus & Mary Chain, they've developed a distinctively identifiable sound of their own whilst carving out a reputation as one of the most intensely visceral live bands around.
Last month saw the release of their fourth long player Transfixiation, which scored an impressive 8/10 on this very site. So it gives us great pleasure at Drowned In Sound to premiere their new video. 'What We Don't See' is taken from the aforementioned record, and at just under two-and-a-half minutes delivers a short, sharp shock to the system by way of sonic annihilation.
The band's European tour also kicks off tomorrow (Tuesday 31st March) night in Dublin.
The full UK dates are as follows:
31 Dublin Whelan’s (w/September Girls)
1 Belfast Voodoo
2 Glasgow King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut
3 Leeds Belgrave Music Hall (w/September Girls)
5 Manchester Sound Control Basement (w/September Girls)

In the meantime, here's the video.
