The Who: Death From Above (Toronto, Canada)
The What: In black and white, embracing their natural inclination for bringing a sonic car wreck to the dance floor, and with Sebastien Grainger (vocals, drums) and Jesse F. Keeler (bass, keys, synths) aka Death From Above (now minus the 1979) – obviously – playing some weird, Canadian version of Charades, “Never Swim Alone” is the second single from the duo’s freshly announced third album, Outrage! Is Now due out September 8th via Warner Bros./Last Gang Records. Not only is the song sound advice, but it’s a punchy track that’s indicative of DFA’s need to musically move forward. “I hope fans see the progression,” said Keeler. “This record is very much the result of the environment and experiences of the last five years.”
The Where: The release of Outrage! Is Now will kickstart a healthy North American tour beginning with Riot Fest in Chicago on September 15th. So check out tour dates and keep up with all things Death From Above (again, minus the 1979) via the usual suspects: their official website, Facebook page and at @DFA1979 on Twitter.
