After a decade without releasing any new material, Death From Above 1979 and their trademark brand of dance-punk (their words, not mine) are back with the riotous new song Trainwreck 1979.

The track is in keeping with their iconic, bass-driven style, but is much more polished than their previous efforts. It’s less raucous and fast-paced, perhaps, than many of the tracks on their only full-length album, 2004’s You’re a Woman I’m a Machine, but it still features the catchy, chugging bass hooks for which the band became renowned.

DFA1979 have once again managed to astound listeners with the incredible sounds they create with only two members playing bass, synths, and drums. The chorus is potentially catchier than anything else they’ve ever done, adding another element to their sound that makes them even more listenable and addictive.

Even more exciting is last month’s announcement that the track will feature on a brand new album, The Physical World, to be released on the 9th of September this year. The band will then embark on a tour in support of the record, which includes three dates in the UK in October:

London Electric Ballroom – 20th October

Manchester Gorilla – 21st October

Glasgow The Garage – 22nd October
