A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS :
Oliver Ackermann formed A Place To Bury Strangers in Brooklyn, New York in 2003. He has written, produced, mixed, and mastered all five A Place To Bury Strangers albums and numerous EPs. He has relentlessly toured the world for 13 years with various band mates. A fierce and legendary live band, APTBS is known for wild live performances filled with beyond intense visuals and dangerous stage antics.

In 2002, Oliver started the effects pedal company Death by Audio. Known (and sometimes feared) for their ability to produce blistering noise, his pedals are used by musicians around the world. APTBS is currently touring their 6th full length studio album “see through you” which was released in February of 2022.

    Purple City Music Festival is pleased to announce its full 2022 artist lineup! Between August 26 - 28th, Edmonton will host 80+ Artists in nine venues across the city. 

    Daytime programming will be located in Hawrelak Park, with evening performances taking place at historic Edmonton venues including The Starlite Room, Garneau Theater (Metro Cinema) and The Freemason’s Hall. 

    This year's Hawrelak Headliners will feature Brooklyn based and self-proclaimed dance punks !!! ( Chk, Chk, Chk ) electrifying the dancefloors of the covered amphitheater on Saturday. Oakland garage rock revivalists  Shannon & The Clams will close the outdoor stage Sunday with their own brand of psychedelic surf punk. 

    Hawrelak will also feature a secondary dance stage called the  Purple City Picnic. This stage will be curated by local tastemakers Night Vision and female-focused Collective Dollhaus Events.

    Kicking off the evening shows for the festival Friday will be a special, all-ages performance hosted by Metro Cinema from the first-ever champion of Canada’s Drag Race, Priyanka. Friday will also see the ecstatic, chaos-and-stimulation overload that is NYC’s noise rockers A Place To Bury Strangers at The Starlite Room. 

    Saturday will keep the party going with the Grunge inspired heaviness of Toronto buzz band Dilly Dally at the Freemasons Hall. Saturday will also feature San Francisco dream-pop staples Papercuts at Starlite

    Closing things out Sunday, The Freemason Hall will reverberate with the sound of California psyche rock troupe Death Valley Girls. Starlite will host a two-room, post-punk showcase featuring a headlining performance by L.A. goth rocker Glaare.

    Wristbands and Day Passes will be available Saturday, April 23, at 12 p.m. MST. Individual tickets go on sale Friday, April 29, 12 p.m. MST. 

    The full festival lineup also includes:  Mas Aya, Basement Revolver, Pearl Charles, Stillwaves, The Garrys,  ACTORS, Petunia, Blue Moon Marquee, Vagina Witchcraft, Mitch Davis (debut edmonton performance), Michael Rault, Archaics (reunion), Sister Ray, Faith Healer, The Velvetiens, Body Lens, Ghostwoman, Motorbike James  Uncanny Valley, Radiation flowers,  Total Chroma, Black Mastiff, Real Sickies, plus 30 more artists.

    A Place To Bury Strangers

    Alternative Rock

    Try, if only for a moment, to envision a scenario in which you could still be completely surprised by a rock band. It’s not easy. In fact, it’s increasingly rare.

    A couple of years ago, A Place to Bury Strangers were in search of a new drummer. Lia Simone Braswell, an L.A. native, had recently moved to New York, and was playing drums in shows around Brooklyn “just to keep her chops up.” As it turned out, APTBS bassist Dion Lunadon caught one of those shows and, after seeing her play, was moved to ask her if she’d want to come to a band practice sometime.

    “I told some of my friends about it before I met up with them,” Braswell says, of the rehearsal that would soon lead to her joining the band. “They told me, ‘You’re just gonna have to keep up as much as you possibly can.’”

    “To be fair, she had also never seen us live,” Lunadon adds. “She didn’t necessarily know what she was getting into.”

    What she was getting into: For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury Strangers—Lunadon, founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, and, officially, Braswell—have become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous volume. They don’t write setlists. They frequently write new songs mid-set. They deliberately provoke and sabotage sound people in a variety of cruel yet innovative ways. They can and will always surprise you. “When something goes wrong on-stage, a lot of bands will crumble under the pressure,” says Ackermann. “We like the idea of embracing the moment when things go wrong and turning it into the best thing about the show.”

    This April marks the release of Pinned, their fifth full-length and an album that finds them converting difficult moments into some of their most urgent work to date. It’s their first since the 2016 election, and their first since the 2014 closing of Death By Audio, the beloved Brooklyn DIY space where Ackerman lived, worked, and created with complete freedom. “After DBA closed, I moved to an apartment in Clinton Hill,” he says. “I couldn’t make too much noise, couldn’t disturb my neighbours. I would just sit there and write with a drum machine. It had to be about writing a good song and not about being super, sonically loud.”
