About Planning For Burial

Planning for Burial's gloomy experimental metal is the brainchild of Thom Wasluck. After playing in several bands while growing up in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, he conceived of Planning for Burial as a solo act in 2005, crafting doomy, obsessive songs that borrow from shoegaze, goth, and alt-rock as well as doom, drone, and black metal. Wasluck released Planning for Burial's debut album Leaving in 2009, and Enemies List Home Recordings reissued it a year later. The project built a following as Wasluck issued a steady stream of short releases, including two collaborations with Lonesummer on Music Ruins Lives and 2012's I Miss Our Conversations, I'm Sorry on Tycho Magnetic Anomalies. After signing with the Flenser, Planning for Burial released its second full-length album Desideratum -- which included a credit for "whiskey" alongside more traditional instruments -- in 2014. Wasluck returned two years later with the single As a Lover, and took inspiration from moving back into his childhood home for Planning for Burial's third album, 2017's Below the House. ~ Heather Phares
