FINALLY.

The wait is over. Death From Above 1979 have revealed a plethora of details about their highly anticipated new album, including the title, cover art, and track-listing. The Physical World will be released on Last Gang on September 9, 2014. The digital pre-order is now available on iTunes and the CD/LP pre-order is available from the band here. The first single, Trainwreck 1979 is now available for sale and streaming at all participating online retailers.

Produced by D. Sardy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother, Oasis), The Physical World comes a full TEN YEARS after the release of the band’s universally acclaimed debut album, You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine, which made Jesse F. Keeler (bass, synths, backing vocals) and Sebastien Grainger(vocals and drums), an underground sensation who quickly transitioned to mainstream. DFA 1979 broke up in 2006 while the first album and subsequent remix album continued to sell inexplicably. The guys decided to reunite in 2011 and began to perform live, picking up where they left off without missing a beat. Their rabid cult has only continued to amass just as inexplicably. Jesse and Sebastien sat down with the NME to talk about the new album release and reuniting. Earlier this spring, DFA 1979 released various clues, tidbits and sonic allusions surrounding a possible new album on deathfromabove1979.com.

In addition, DFA have announced that they will hit the road this fall for an extensive European and U.S. headlining tour; tickets go on sale this Friday, July 11th. Please see below for all tour dates.
