Death From Above 1979: New Music + Tour

Woah. Legendary electro-punks Death From Above 1979 have unleashed a new website, new songs, and news of a Canadian tour.

Rather than record these songs for us to make babies to, they’ve decided to hit the road, stating that:

“the only way we feel like we can make them any good is to go out and play them for people. We’re going to throw our little muscle bound babies to the lions and see who survives. We tried just jumping into the studio, but the songs lacked spirit. They lacked life. This tour is song CPR.

There’s no way for us to do it anonymously anymore, so we’re inviting you to come along with us. Watch us Do It. The way we used to. The way everyone used to. We’re a band, and bands just work it out together.

See you soon.
