Death From Above 1979 Documentary To Feature The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Death From Above 1979 dropped their new album, The Physical World, earlier this month, but the road to that release was not easy.
In fact, the time between 2004's You're A Woman, I'm A Machine and The Physical World was so dramatic that it inspired a new Eva Michon-directed documentary Life After Death From Above 1979 (due Oct. 7).
Entertainment Weekly broke down the plot:
In 2006, after a grueling tour supporting You're a Woman, Keeler and Grainger abandoned their bombastic music, raucous shows, and strained relationship. The duo didn't speak for five years, but stayed in music; Grainger performed under his own name, while Keeler founded the successful electronic duo MSTRKRFT. But fans continued to clamor for a Death From Above 1979 reunion, culminating in a high-profile set at 2011's Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
EW also reports that members of The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Justice will be included in the film, along with other prominent artists.
Here's the trailer:
