Brooklyn noise rockers A Place to Bury Strangers are releasing a new album, Pinned, this Friday (April 13) via Dead Oceans. Previously they shared a black & white horror movie-esque video for its first single and opening track, “Never Coming Back,” as well as a video for the unrelenting “There’s Only One of Us Left.” Now they have shared a video for another new song, “Frustrated Operator.” Sophie Kadow directed the psychedelic clip, which you can watch below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Pinned is the band’s fifth album. A press release points out that it’s also the band’s first since both the 2016 U.S. election and the 2014 closing of the band’s Brooklyn DIY space Death By Audio, where founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackerman also lived. This is also the first album to feature new drummer Lia Simone Braswell (the band also features bassist Dion Lunadon).

Ackerman had this to say about the album and the band changes in a previous press release: “As things go on, you don’t want them to be stagnant. Being a band for 10 years, it’s hard to keep things moving forward. I see so many bands that have been around and they’re a weaker version of what they used to be. This band is anti-that. We try to push ourselves constantly, with the live shows and the recordings. We always want to get better. You’ve got to dig deep and take chances, and sometimes, I questioned that. It took really breaking through to make it work. I think we did that.”
