Death From Above 1979 has just released their new single, “Trainwreck 1979”, giving us just a bit more insight into their upcoming sophomore release, The Physical World–the long-awaited follow up to 2004’s You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine. To promote their new album (which comes out September 9, by the way), the band has mapped out quite the tour, with dates in Europe, the United Kingdom and North America. The North American leg of the tour starts in New Orleans, LA at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience on November 1. After NOLA, the band will head to Atlanta, GA; Nashville, TN; Houston, TX; Austin, TX (for Fun Fun Fun Fest); San Diego, CA; San Francisco, CA; Portland, OR; Boulder, CO; New York, NY (at Terminal 5); and Washington, DC, before a final show at the House of Blues in Boston, MA on December 2. Tickets for some dates are on sale now—visit the band’s website for more information.

Comprised of Jesse F. Keeler on bass and synths and Sebastien Grainger on vocals and drums, Death From Above 1979 was formed when the duo met at a Sonic Youth concert. They released their debut album in 2004, only to tour, get big, and then break up in 2006. They announced a reunion in 2011, giving us a second chance at a great band.
