Death From Above 1979 Tease New Music Online

Following the announcement of their reunion in 2011 and the confirmation of a new record in the works back in July of last year, Death From Above 1979 have posted a teaser clip of new music to their official website, accompanying an image of a man working on an apparent stage backdrop.

The band have developed a reputation amongst fans for being notoriously sporadic with site updates, but the most recent has proved good news for fans of the dance-punk duo, who posted a looped snippet of new music along with a link to a Subreddit page devoted to DFA 1979 updates.

The Canadian outfit — drummer Sebastien Grainger and bass player Jesse F Keeler, who also forms one half of the dance music duo MSTRKRFT — originally split in 2006 and released only one album, 2004's You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine, before reforming in 2011 for a series of festival gigs.

Late last year, Grainger said in an interview with Exclaim! that the band have indeed been working on a follow-up to their highly lauded debut, but that there was no timeframe for its completion, saying, “We don’t want to make a nerdy, technical record or an unsexy, super adult record.”
