This band's existence justifies the need for universal health care.

I worry about the members of A Place to Bury Strangers. First, they instructed us to fix the gashes in our heads, which suggests that we all did something that resulted in us receiving gashes in our heads. Then, they wrote a record about exploding heads. And now, they are directing us Onwards to the Wall. Dudes, we here in the USA still haven’t quite worked out all the kinks in all that universal health care stuff. Therefore, you might want to go easy on the head-bashing-wall-running-into thing.


And all of you, PopMatters readers, should probably turn down your speakers as you watch the following video for the band’s newest single “So Far Away”. The band is still unbearably loud, and we here in the USA still haven’t worked out all the kinks in all that universal health care stuff.
