    Brooklyn noise rock outfit A Place To Bury Strangers will release their fourth studio album, Transfixation, on February 17th via Dead Oceans.

    The 11-track effort is described as the “product of two years of constant touring and recording since the release of 2012’s Worship.” The new LP was tracked at Brooklyn’s Death by Audio (which was co-founded by guitarist Oliver Ackermann), and marks the debut release with drummer Robi Gonzalez, who joined the band in spring 2012.

    A press release adds that with Transfixation, the trio “trusted its instincts and tried to keep things as pure as possible. If that meant a mess of cross-contaminated microphones and mud-caked mistakes, so be it. Music is much more exhilarating when it’s unpredictable, and this is very much an unpredictable record.” Gonzalez is also noted for helping to “push the band’s recorded sound closer to the intense level of its infamous live shows.”
