If you’re a fan of Canadian duo Death From Above 1979, at some point over the last 12 hours, I assume you shat yourself.
It’s been ten years since the release of their phenomenal debut full length ‘You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine’ and now they’re back, having debuted their new track ‘Trainwreck 1979’ on Zane Lowe’s radio 1 show last night. The internet pretty much went crackers.
So this morning, to keep the ball rolling, they’ve released further details of the new record ‘The Physical World‘, and before most people had even finished their morning coffee, they were straight out the blocks with some tour dates. October 21st sees the rad duo return to Manchester, where they’ll be playing Gorilla. This is a great shout in my opinion, and it seems like the perfect venue to house DFA1979. I can see it being sold out, and I can certainly see it being a sweaty one. Tickets go on sale this Friday (11th July).
New track ‘Trainwreck 1979’ is certainly a grower. I wasn’t sold on it first listen, but I’ve given it multiple listens since then and I’m fully behind it. It’s the classic crunchiness from Sebastien and Jesse that we all love (along with those howling vocals). Check out the rad video for the new track below:
