Oliver Ackermann manufactures noise for a living. Fronting Brooklynite Shoegaze/Indie Rock outfit A Place to Bury Strangers isn't enough to satisfy his thirst for rattling decibels. As a supplement, he founded Death by Audio, a guitar pedal company that shares its moniker with a New York venue. Creating for a client list that includes U2, Ackermann christens his pedals with fierce fire — there's the Octave Clang, Interstellar Overdriver and Total Sonic Annihilation.
In A Place to Bury Strangers, he uses an array of pedals to craft enormous distortion-filled textures in the spirit of My Bloody Valentine.
They play the Southgate House with The Big Pink and Eat Sugar. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
