I love it when a plan (band) comes (back) together!

11 Feb

On an otherwise dull and depressing Tuesday 8th February, a joyful thing happened.  I awoke to read the news that one of my all time favourite bands, Death From Above 1979 had reformed and were set to play a handful of now SOLD OUT shows.  I bloody love this band.  I’ve seen them three times and each time I left completely broken and ecstatic at the aural onslaught I had just witnessed.  If I am being honest, I was properly upset when they split in 2006, citing irreconcilable differences and some gubbins about going gold in Canada.

We started as a punk band with pop aspirations and we met every goal we set for ourselves.  A few weeks ago, the album finally went gold in Canada and that was the final mark I really wanted to reach.

So you can image my sheer joy and excitement at reading this little doozey on their official site:

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!


YES.  One thousand times YES!  Tickets reportedly sold out in minutes for the one off London gig at the HMV Forum on May 5th and in the paraphrased words of Paul BremerLadies and gentlemen, I got some!

So let’s get this Friday started son, put this in your pipe generic MP3 player and smoke play it!

    Cannot explain how gutted I am that this is now sold out. Bloody work getting in the way of getting tickets. SOB. I’m sure I’ll get one, somehow.
