Death From Above 1979 return to the UK in September

Single ‘Romantic Rights’ October 25th

Death From Above 1979 (formerly Death From Above) are set to bring their
immense noise back to the UK ahead of the release of their debut single
proper ‘Romantic Rights’.

The Toronto two-piece officially declared war on tedium on their last visit,
leaving nothing but dropped jaws, pummelled senses and bleeding ears in
their wake. Their limited edition picture disc single ‘Blood On Our Hands’
sold out almost immediately and appeared on Ebay straight after. On their
last ‘Elephant In Your Living Tour’ Death From Above 1979 made the claim
that they would play anywhere, to anyone, as many times in as short a period
of time as possible and promptly backed this up with some amazing shows in
the most unlikely locations. The band crammed into the back of the Crobar,
insulted the Queen, fought the crowd and left only to repeat the performance
much later that day at Frog at Mean Fiddler. They supported the Killers when
it was remarked “To say Sheffield is dazed by the two-man musical maelstrom
that is Death From Above (1979) would be an understatement of criminal
proportions” The Fly. The ‘Elephant In Your Living Room Tour’ concluded with
a show, actually in a fan’s living room in suburban West Norwood.
