Death From Above 1979 Are Coming To Dublin


Death From Above 1979 are ready to hit the road again, the band have announced a new Ireland & UK tour for next year.

The rockers are kicking off the European leg of their tour in good ‘ol Dublin, it will be the group’s only show in the Rep of Ireland.

The Canadian duo of Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler are currently on their comeback tour of North America.

They released their debut album ten years ago in 2004, but split up in 2006. Three years ago they announced their reunion and their follow-up second album The Physical World.

Death From Above 1979’s lead single titled ‘Trainwreck 1979’ is a belter and the video manages to capture the energy of the band performing live.

Last month, a documentary chronicling the roller-coaster career of Death From Above 1979 was released. The film titled ‘Life After Death From Above 1979,’ spans the groups’ ten year career, and attempts to explain why the band broke up at the height of their powers.

The new album is produced by Dave Sardy, who has previously worked with Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem and Oasis. Grainger told NME in a recent interview that the band was itching to release The Physical World partly because fans and journalists have been pestering them about album two since You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine.

The group are playing The Academy in Dublin on February 20th. Tickets cost €27.90 plus booking fee and go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am.
