Canadian duo Death From Above 1979 released their new album ‘The Physical World’ earlier this year. The LP was released a decade after their debut LP, ‘You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine’, came out in 2004. Band members Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler subsequently split in 2006, but reformed for a series of live shows in 2011 and 2012.

Last month, meanwhile, a documentary detailing the career of the band was released. Life After Death From Above 1979 was released via Vimeo On Demand on October 7 and covered the duo’s career, including their split and subsequent return at Coachella in 2011. Directed by Eva Minchon, the film includes interviews with members of The Strokes, Justice, Metric and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Click below to watch a trailer.
