Death From Above 1979 bio image

It doesn’t matter how Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler met and formed the Toronto rock duo Death From Above 1979 (either on a pirate ship or in prison, take your pick). All that really matters is that they found a way to blend power rock and dance floor sensibilities, finally giving today’s sound the swagger it’s been missing. Their album,You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine has enough blaring riffs, off-beat lyrics, intense rhythms, and strong hooks to satisfy anyone.

Jesse and I have decided that what we can do together should not be denied. Together again, as was always the intention, as a collaboration. The collision of two different worlds. As this all takes shape, we will reveal it to you. All of it happening, as it always has, in our own way. Thank you all for sharing in our excitement!
