Death From Above 1979 was a Toronto based Canadian indie rock duo. The members were Jesse F. Keeler on bass/synths and Sebastien Grainger on vocals/drums. Refusing to employ a lead guitarist, they played loud synth infused dance-noise on the drum and bass combination alone. Their sound has been compared to Lightning Bolt. They were signed to Last Gang Records in Canada, Vice Records in the U.S. and 679 Recordings in the UK. In 2005, the video for "Romantic Rights" won a VideoFACT award at the MuchMusic Video Music Awards. They played "Romantic Rights" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, with Max Weinberg on drums for part of the performance. On August 3rd, 2006 Keeler, via the band's official website, announced the duo's split.
