Death From Above 1979 have shared a new video for their track ‘White Is Red’.

The song featured on the duo’s 2014 comeback LP ‘The Physical World’, which was the band’s first album in 10 years.

Directed by Eva Michon – who previously worked with the pair for their ‘Virgins’ clip – the ‘White Is Red’ clip showcases footage from last year’s Life After Death From Above 1979 documentary. The video showcases live footage and behind-the-scenes clips.

Band members Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F Keeler split in 2006, but reformed for a series of live shows in 2011 and 2012.

Speaking about their future plans, Grainger recently told NME that after the upcoming festival season there are no concrete plans or dates in their diary.

“This band doesn’t get any easier,” he said. “It doesn’t matter how long we’ve been doing it, or how well rehearsed we are, it’s just such a physical undertaking. The show is so physical. I’d forgotten about that, you kind of romanticise it. It’s really draining. It takes a lot of energy.”

Asked what this means for the future of the band, Grainger added: “I don’t know what we’re going to be doing next to be honest. We just want to keep the energy in the band positive. I don’t know what’s going to happen, we’ll see.”
