Death By Audio launches label

    Guitar freaks who crave FX pedals with names like Total Sonic Annihilation and Soundwave Breakdown need look no further than Brooklyn’s Death By Audio. Death By Audio is also a venue, a practice space, and home to the sci-fi garage rock of A Place to Bury Strangers. Most of the operations are overseen by Strangers frontman Oliver Ackermann, who gives a guided tour of Death By Audio in this Pitchfork.tv presentation.

    Ackermann’s band may have been denied the title of “loudest band in New York” in a recent issue of Time Out (Black Dice claims that honor), but that hasn’t halted his plans for world domination. Death By Audio has announced plans for a label, beginning with a cassette-only release by two-piece Brooklyn band Sisters. The Sisters tape, and the rest of the label’s releases, can be purchased through the Death By Audio Records site.
