The duo unveil their very own piece of festive knitwear

Death From Above 1979 put out Christmas jumper
Death From Above have put out a Christmas jumper.

The duo are the latest act to unveil their own piece of festive merch, following Queens of The Stone Age, Metallica, Slayer and Wu-Tang Clan, who are all selling Christmas jumpers this year.

Last year (September 2012), DFA 1979 confirmed that they are working on new material, before announcing a string of live dates.

The duo originally separated in 2006 after six years together. They later reformed for a string of festival appearances and a UK date in 2011.

The band's Sebastian Grainger wrote in a letter on the their website that he and bandmate Jesse F Keeler needed to work out the tracks in a live setting before they could go into the studio to record them.

He wrote: "Jesse and I have been writing new songs and the only way we feel like we can make them any good is to go out and play them for people. We’re going to throw our little muscle bound babies to the lions and see who survives. We tried just jumping into the studio, but the songs lacked spirit. They lacked life."

DFA 1979 released their debut album 'You're A Woman And I'm A Machine' in 2004 before following it up with remixes and B-sides album 'Romance Bloody Romance' in February 2006.
