After six years of making music together, Death From Above 1979 have called it quits. On their official website Jesse F. Keeler says "I know it's been forever since I wrote anything on here. I'm sure by now most of you assume the band isn't 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."
DFA 1979 release their debut album You're A Woman and I'm A Machine last year. The duo admits that they weren't talking by the end of the split. Keeler states that "we changed so much that the people we were by the end of it probably wouldn't have been friends if they were going to meet for the first time again. It's a totally normal function of growing up."
