Recently revived Canadian rock/punk heroes Death From Above 1979 are the subjects of a forthcoming documentary that covers their "lost decade" between the release of debut LP You're A Woman, I'm A Machine and their reunification this year for sophomore LP The Physical World.

Titled Life After Death From Above 1979, the doco, directed by Eva Michon (Lollipop), canvasses the story of "the greatest band that never made it", peeling back the veil to look at the whys and wherefores of the pressures and circumstances that led members Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler to pull the pin just as the duo looked set to crack the big time for real.

Replete with interviews from the likes of Justice, members of The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric and others, the documentary looks set to be an eye-opening foray into the world of Death From Above 1979, the sort of pull-no-punches music documentary that will be spoken about for years.
