Come Alive with Death From Above 1979

death from above 1979 live 20162Around since 2004 the Canadian punk duo released one full length album then broke up in 2006.  In 2011 they got back together and in the fall of 2014 released their sophomore album, The Physical World.


Jesse F. Keelor and Sebastien Grainger met at a Sonic Youth concert and afterwards got together to play music together.  After a legal battle they changed their name from Death From Above adding on the 1979. When pressed for a reason Grainger stated it was the last year of the last cool decade for music and his birth year.


Creative differences and different musical directions caused the duo to stop working together.  After a break of almost five years they started up again, writing new music and playing some live dates.  Fans have been chomping at the bit and now have the opportunity not only to buy a new album, but to see them live on stage.
