If you were to put your head up to a cement mixer for several hours you might get close to the sound of the industrial-tinged experimental rockers A Place to Bury Strangers. Keep at it and eventally you may burst a blood vessel in your forehead or worse. Strangers’ type of glorious din requires such a warning label. So it comes with no surprise that the cacophonous New York trio’s sophomore longplayer is entitled Exploding Headout October 6th on Mute. Just in time for your Halloween mixtape!

According to vocalist/guitarist Oliver Ackermann, the game plan was to “create the craziest, most f’ed-up recording ever.” Along with the group’s “crazy theme,” are characteristically nihilistic song titles such as, “It Is Nothing” and “Everything Always Goes Wrong.” “In Your Heart” is either a bone-crushing love ballad or a bone-crushing din. Our money’s on the latter. The 43-minute sequel to the threesome’s excellent self-titled debut was engineered by Andy Smith (Paul Simon, David Bowie). For fans that are into that sort of thing, APTBS has a Twitter page. Check periodically for exclusive content, et al.

The band will attempt to implode your cerebellum in concerts across North America this October. Below are the dates and full tracklist:
