With the release of their 2017 record 'Outrage! Is Now' still rattling around in our heads, dance-punk legends Death From Above 1979 have now announced the details behind their new studio album 'Is 4 Lovers', arriving on the 26th March.
The new ten-track collection is being previewed by the raucous new offering 'One + One', which comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Eva Michon.
Speaking about the new single, the band's Sebastian Grainger said, “‘One + One’ is a love song. It’s the karmic sequel to Romantic Rights. My wife, Eva, became pregnant not long after we started working on the song and after hearing an early version she said, ‘I wish this song was dancier’. So I went back into the studio and re-worked the drums. As the record was taking shape, every time I would come home from the studio the baby would start dancing in Eva’s belly. Even before I walked in the room the party would start. One plus one is three, that’s magic!”
Adding about the new video, “Since we started playing people would come up to the stage and after and say: ‘I can’t believe there’s just two of you. The video for ‘One + One’ is Eva’s way of showing that our band is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s Death From Above 1979 in multitudes.”
