Their addition to the official lineup of this year’s Coachella music frenzy has been received more than well. Toronto’s Canadian dance-punk/noise rock-outfit, Death From Above 1979, rejoined forces to bless the masses with their music for the first time after their breakup in 2006. Now the duo – consisting of Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler – have issued an official statement regarding their reunion, which could even be expanded in the future. Read below.

SOME WORDS

It’s been 5 years since Death From Above 1979 played a show, 10 years since Jesse played me the first demos & 11 years since we sat in his parents basement and played so loud we knocked the china off the shelves upstairs. 11 seems to be a YES number for me. Though I am usually a pretty rational guy, if I have something on my mind and I see an 11 somewhere, I know I’m on the right path. It’s one of my last remaining superstitions. 2011 has a nice ring to it & if you’re so inclined, it may be the last year ever! So why not say YES? Why not say YES to Coachella? Why not say YES to playing the music we designed to be an undeniable source of power? Why not say YES to stirring up a writhing pit of sweaty humans? YES to riots! YES to heavy music! YES instead of maybe, and YES to make death your adviser and remind yourself always, that this is not a dress rehearsal. This is the big show.

Jesse and I have decided that what we can do together should not be denied.
Together again, as was always the intention, as a collaboration.
The collision of two different worlds.
As this all takes shape, we will reveal it to you.
All of it happening, as it always has, in our own way.
Thank you all for sharing in our excitement!

Yes.
SEBASTIEN

As history has taught us, both members have launched successful careers as solo acts, but it should be more than interesting to witness what both minds will create after they gained individual experience.
