On July 8th, DFA 1979 revealed details regarding their eagerly anticipated new album, The Physical World, which will be released by Last Gang Records/Warner Bros. Records on September 9th, 2014. The digital pre-order is now up on iTunes and the exclusive album bundles are available from the band here.The first single, “Trainwreck 1979,“ is now available for purchase at all participating online retailers.
Produced by D. Sardy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother, Oasis), The Physical World comes a full ten years after the release of the band’s universally acclaimed debut album, You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine, which made Jesse F. Keeler (bass, synths, backing vocals) and Sebastien Grainger (vocals and drums), an underground /over ground sensation. DFA 1979 broke up in 2006 while the first album and subsequent remix album continued to sell inexplicably. They decided to reunite in 2011 and began to perform live picking up where they left off without missing a beat. Their rabid cult has only continued to amass just as inexplicably. Jesse and Sebastien sat down with the NME to talk about the new album release and reuniting. Earlier this spring, DFA 1979 released various clues, tidbits and sonic allusions surrounding a possible new album on deathfromabove1979.com. This is also the exclusive portal into the wormhole world into all things DFA 1979 now and in the future.
