Published Jun 11, 2014Reunited Toronto duo Death From Above 1979 have been teasing a new album for a while, but they've since delivered some concrete details.
The new release is called The Physical World and will arrive on September 9 via Last Gang — almost exactly 10 years since they released their You're a Woman, I'm a Machine LP.
Speaking with NME, the band's Sebastien Grainger said, "No matter what Jesse and I do, on whatever scale of success it's sat on, there's always some kind of reference to Death From Above. It's only frustrating because it's so lazy. So we're putting out a Death From Above record and if the press is like, 'It's not what we expected,' or however they react to it, it's like, 'Well, you've been fucking asking for it.'"
He added, "This record is a key for us. It will permit us to go play the shows we want to play and it gives us the freedom to do what we want."
While a tracklisting for the D. Sardyalbum is yet unknown, DIY Mag reports [via Pitchfork] that it will include the songs "Right On," "Virgins" and "Cheap Talk." The band told NME that one song sounds like "Springsteen meets Sonic Youth."
The album was produced by D. Sardy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem).
