Listen: Death From Above 1979 - Trainwreck

Their long awaited return...

Live fast, disappear early and leave an impeccable back catalogue.

With just one studio album to their name, Death From Above 1979 just about fulfilled this aphorism - and then some. Returning to scenes of riotous behaviour at SXSW, the band's second volume has proved to be as blood-quickening as the first.

Heading back into the studio, Death From Above 1979 are to release their much anticipated (by a good decade or so) second album 'The Physical World' later this year (pre-order).

Last night (July 7th) Zane Lowe received the first play of the duo's new track. 'Trainwreck' is a bruised and bloodied return, matching throbbing bass tones to searing electronics and pile-driver drums.

Check it out now.

'The Physical World' will be released on December 9th.
