Last night saw Death From Above 1979 making their first television appearance since remarkably reforming to bring out album number two, ‘The Physical World’.
Ten years on from their debut, the thrashing two-piece performance lead single ‘Trainwreck 1979’ on the Late Show with David Letterman, with the in-house band providing keys to accompany Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler’s thrashing routine.
‘The Physical World’ is out now on Last Gang Records.
Catch up with DIY’s massive feature on DFA 1979’s exciting comeback here, and read the DIY review on their new record, which claims they remain “the perfect band”.
