Underrated Band: Death From Above 1979


When you think of Canada you mainly think of hockey, and health care for everyone. Music isn’t the best export, especially when Nickelback is a part of it. Thankfully though, Death From Above 1979 saved the day. This dance/electro/noise/punk/rock band consists of Jesse Keeler (bass, synths, vocals) and Sebastien Grainger (drums, vocals). Death From Above 1979 have the ability to cross genres and get different people to enjoy what they offer. Their debut album You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine was released in late 2004. The band toured extensively on that but sadly broke up in 2006. After a few years away from each other Jesse and Sebastien reunited in 2011. They played their first shows in early 2012 and announced they were working on a new album. In 2014, The Physical World was released. The album was produced by Dave Sardy and features 11 songs of pure excitement, with tons of groove, and rocking beats. Currently Death From Above 1979 is on tour with Deftones and Incubus. These guys were very underrated and helped to pave the way for countless bands around today.
