This one's for the purists
Just like that, in less than five minutes, ten years' wait came to an end, and the world had new Death From Above 1979.
Making its premiere on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show overnight, Trainwreck 1979 gives fans the first tangible taste of DFA1979 tastiness since 2004's seminal debut LP You're A Woman, I'm A Machine, and within seconds it feels as though the dirty party never stopped; the song's snappy beats, filthy riffs and nods to discord acting as a kind of defibrillator for the festivities, giving the endless night a much-needed kick-start, rather than staging a whole new event.
Previously only available about an hour and 53 minutes into a two-hour stream of Lowe's show, Trainwreck 1979 has now been made available via the band's YouTube channel, so you can now cut right to the chase and get your gritty rock-out on without delay.
The band revealed last month that they would finally release a follow-up album, The Physical World, to 2004's effort, set for release on September 9 via Last Gang Records. It will be Death From Above 1979's first new work since their original dissolution in 2006.
