Destructive Noise at Devilstone: A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS

Devilstone always gives a warm welcome to experimental and niche artists. This summer, the festival proudly presents A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS – postmodern expression of rock music from Brooklyn, New York.

It would seem that it is difficult to make something new using old formulas, but A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS denies this. Post punk, shoegaze, and noise rock unite in their music and shine in a whole new spectrum of colours. These apparently positive music genres are greatly darkened, but, even under the rough veil of noise, a dreamy feel cannot be hidden.

Ironically, the band’s drummer has been commissioned to make drum pedals for TV ON THE RADIO and U2 – bands that do not have prominent drum sections, but for A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS themselves, percussion is crucial. Rhythms reminding of convulsive teeth chattering help to fill the dance floor with music-induced fierceness. Fear, however, is the main emotion these Americans are seeking to elicit. Certainly, A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS will not spare Devilstone’s audience – prepare to be pleasantly frightened this summer, 14th to 17th of July in Anykščiai.

Every summer since 2009, the alternative music festival Devilstone gathers thousands of people in a town called Anykščiai in Lithuania; more specifically – in Dainuva valley, on the banks of the river Šventoji. Among all music festivals in the Baltics, Devilstone is distinguished for its diversity: the festival’s programme offers high-end and trending rock music together with exquisite extreme metal. This summer’s lineup includes such renowned names as BEHEMOTH, NAPALM DEATH, UNCLE ACID, THE SOFT MOON, PERTURBATOR, and TRUCKFIGHTERS. Forty concerts will take place on three stages, whereas night-time DJ’s will entertain the audience on the fourth. Devilstone is appealing not only because of its content, but for its high-standard infrastructure and security, as well as for its extraordinarily positive and magnetic atmosphere. The eighth Devilstone will continue for four days – from the 14th to the 17th of July.
