TVD Ticket Giveaway: Death From Above 1979 at the 9:30 Club, 12/1

The boys are at it again! After announcing their break-up in 2006, Death from Above 1979 reunited in 2011 to appease the public demand for a performance, embarking on a year long tour. Three years later, the duo found themselves back on the road and back in the studio.

A decade since the release of their debut album You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine, the Canadian punk-rockers announced the release of their second album back in June. Titled The Physical World, Death from Above 1979’s latest release hit the online shelves this past September. According to Death from Above 1979 members Sebastien Grainger and Jesse Keeler, the album was “written and recorded between 2012 and 2014 in some real life Rorschach test where past and present are perfectly symmetrical and equally terrifying.”

In support of their album release, Death from Above 1979 is embarking on an international tour. The duo recently announced UK tour dates, but prior to crossing the pond, Grainger and Keeler are performing across the U.S. and Canada. Among their stops is a show at the 9:30 Club on Monday, December 1. Don’t have tickets yet? No worries, we’re giving away a pair!

Though they ended their first stint as a band right when they were on the cusp of making it big, the pair doesn’t seem to be having a problem stepping back into the limelight. On the reunion, Grainger told Rolling Stone, “It’s not strange as much as you forget what it’s like going from having nothing on our plate for a really long time to a new record. Going from zero to a million.”

In addition to the new album and tour, Death from Above 1979 is the subject of a Vimeo on Demand documentary titled Life After Death from Above 1979. The documentary, which delves into the band’s years in hiatus, premiered on October 7. It was directed by Grainger’s wife, Eva Michon.

Enter to win tickets to see Death from Above 1979 at the 9:30 Club on Monday, December 1, by leaving a comment below with the name of a band that you would like to have a reunion tour. I’m still hoping ‘NSYNC will reunite.

A winner will be chosen on Tuesday, November 25.  Tickets are still available for purchase.

    I’d love to see Operation Ivy make a comeback! Such a great band and part of my youth!

    I’m still hoping for a Hüsker Dü reunion.

    Ween… though it seems unlikely at this point in time.

    The White Stripes, would love to see Meg and Jack back together!

    Does Rage Against the Machine count? Definitely seeing them is on my bucket list, however unlikely that is.

    I mean.. obviously not possible, but if I really could make any reunion tour happen it would be the Jimi Hendrix Experience. While that involves 3 resurrections, its still my first choice.
