Try, if only for a moment, to envision a scenario in which you could still be completely *surprised* by a rock band. Its not easy. In fact, its 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 shed 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, Youre 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 didnt necessarily know what she was getting into.What she was getting into: For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury StrangersLunadon, founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, and, officially, Braswellhave become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous volume. They dont 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. Its 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.
