Today, the revered Toronto-born dance-punk outfit Death from Above 1979 revealed their plans for a very special United States co-headlining tour, alongside fellow noise rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. With the tour set to kick off on October 11th in Cleveland, the tour will eventually be making its way to our region, with stops in both Seattle and Portland planned towards the end of October. This will be DFA’s first Seattle show since they were touring The Physical World in 2014 and stopped by Neumos, so this will be an exciting opportunity for fans to see them again, and in a larger venue. Though this tour is also in support of the band’s 2014 comeback record, the duo have also said that they are working on their currently untitled third full-length LP.
When asked about the co-headlining U.S. tour, DFA had the following to say: “Life and death. If you’re lucky you’re not scared of either one. Well, we’re not afraid and to prove it we’re going to keep touring this year. Death From Above is pleased to announce a co-headline Fall 2016 US tour with our friends Black Rebel Motorcycle Club! We’re hitting all the usual cities, and a couple of unusual ones too (you know who you are!). We’re also thrilled to have our sisters in Deap Vally coming along for the ride. 100% Certified Organic Rock and Roll. Don’t be scared, come live your lives with us.”
On October 20th, DFA, BRMC, and special guests Deap Vally will be stopping by the Showbox SoDo in Seattle, and the following day, October 21st, they will be stopping by the Roseland Theater in Portland.
