Death From Above 1979 Celebrate New LP In New York City
With only two studio albums released in their 10-year career, Death From Above 1979 have one of the most rabid fan bases we've seen as of late. Celebrating the release of their latest LP, 'The Physical World,' last night (Sept. 8) at New York City's largest record store, Rough Trade, their fans packed the house for a loud, heavy, loud, sweaty and loud (did we mention loud?) show to kick off the week.
Death From Above 1979's performance covered their two records; opening with 2004's 'Turn It Out,' the Canadian duo quickly set their sights on their newest effort and rocked three new tunes back-to-back-to-back. The 18-song set included every single track from 'The Physical World,' and nearly every song from their debut, 'You're a Woman, I'm a Machine.'
It didn't take long for bassist Jesse Keeler to address the crowd and say, "I apologize to everyone without earplugs." Nobody in the crowd seemed to worry about the volume of the show; instead, they moshed and pushed as hard as they could to get close to the stage. With drummer Sebastien Grainger decked out in all white and Keeler in black head-to-toe, the stage set-up was simple, but the energy between the two musicians was off the charts; if you closed your eyes, it was hard to imagine the performance was being handled by only two people.
'The Physical World' is available now wherever fine records are sold. Get details on the release, and the band's upcoming European and stateside tours, at their official website here.
