The Canadian noise rock duo, Death By Above 1979, just released a slew of new dates for their reunion tour. They’ll also be testing out a slate of brand new songs during these shows. This will be their first new material since their 2004 debut, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine.
Sebastian Grainger gave the good news on the band’s website:
Jesse and I have been writing new songs and the only way we feel we can make them any good is to go out and play them for people. We’re going to throw our little muscle bound babies to the lions and see who survives. We tried just jumping. We tried just jumping into the studio, but the songs lacked spirit. They lacked life.
So this tour is song CPR.
There’s no way for us to do it anonymously anymore, so we’re inviting you to come along with us. Watch us Do It. The way we used to. The way everyone used to. We’re a band, and bands just work it out together.
The new tour will be exclusively in the band’s home country, Canada from October 28 until November 11.
