American noise rock band A Place to Bury Strangers has announced an extensive tour in Asia which will include dates in Singapore, Manila, Jakarta, and Kuala Lumpur.
Their Asian tour will kick off in Tokyo, Japan this December on 13 December, which will go on until 22 December 2017 in Indonesia.
The band – composed of Oliver Ackermann (guitar/vocals, bass), Dion Lunadon (bass guitar, guitar) and Lia Simone Braswell (drums) – is commonly known by the initials APTBS. They often play a heavy, atmospheric wall of sound-influenced blend of psychedelic rock, shoegaze and space rock.
Formed in 2002, APTBS gained acclaim via their self-titled album in 2007 and also through their performance in Webster Hall.
Throughout the years, the band’s live shows became increasingly chaotic, which reportedly earned them the title of New York City’s “loudest band” from various indie reviewers and bloggers.
This will be APBTS’ first time in most of their Southeast Asian stops except for Singapore. The band previously performed in Singapore in 2015.
The trio will be heading to Manila first on 19 December, before going to Singapore on 20 December, Kuala Lumpur on 21 December, and finally Jakarta on 21 December.
