As you might have already guessed, Death From Above 1979 have officially ended their existence. It's been a long haul, but now they've made the official announcement on their MySpace page, saying that it's really, really over.
"I know its been forever since i wrote anything on here. I'm sure by now most of you assume the band isnt happening anymore since there are no shows, no work on a new album, etc. well I wanted to let you know that your assumptions are correct. We decided to stop doing the band... actually we decided that almost a year ago," said bassist Jesse Keeler in a posting.
The band was supposedly working this year on a new album, at the new studio built by Keeler, called MSTRKRFT. That's also the name of his new project with Al-P who've just released their new album The Looks last month. It appears that Death From Above 1979 dissolved at some point last year, but continued on to honor commitments made by the band.
"...actually we decided that almost a year ago. we finished off our scheduled tour dates because there were good people working for us who relied on us to make a living and buy christmas presents and pay rent etc. we couldnt just cancel everything and leave them out to dry..."
In the meantime drummer Sebastien Grainger has been seen playing drums with Broken Social Scene, but has made no real announcements as to future plans. Jesse Keeler is currently promoting his MSTRKRFT release while working Josh Homme on the new Queens of The Stone Age album.
