    Death From Above 1979

    No thread? I'll start a thread. Caught the Vancouver stop of their last tour and they straight killed it.

    Oh, before I forget. THEY'VE WRITTEN NEW MUSIC FOR A NEW ALBUM AND HERE'S MORE TOUR DATES.

    I saw them once (supporting NIN?) and they were great live. Great.
    But their album was disappointing.

    I dig the new song. I can see why people are a little worried cause it does feel a polished....the official version that's come out sounds great with headphones though. We'll have to see.

    I didn't even know they were making a new album. Great news. Their old stuff has become sort of 'classic rock' to me, stuff I compulsively play when the mood strikes me every now and then. I dig the new song; its different, but still them.

    Sounds like they combined the MSTRKFT style with DFA79


    which is cool.

    I heard about this two weeks ago but was forced to keep silent by the promoters. I'm fucking psyched for that tour and got to announce the gig in our city magazine + getting 2 tickets for free. Orangehouse is a really small club aswell, which has me even more excited! I'm really happy about this and the new track is also quite nice!

    Quite different. More polished, less synth craziness but there's still more studio work than just drums and bass. some of the tracks are proper hard angry, some quite accessible. One I just listened to was very danceable.

    Got my tickets for Manchester uk!

    This new album is magical. Honestly not a single bad track on here. It just flies by. This has exceeded every bit of hype I had for it.
