Death From Above 1979 write new songs, road test them (2012)

Death From Above 1979 have resurfaced and posted an update to their blog stating that the band has been writing new songs, and is gearing up for touring. Sebastian Grainger writes:
“So here we go. Jesse and I have been writing new songs and the only way we feel like we can make them any good is to go out and play them for people. We’re going to throw our little muscle bound babies to the lions and see who survives. We tried just jumping into the studio, but the songs lacked spirit. They lacked life.
So this tour is song CPR.
There’s no way for us to do it anonymously anymore, so we’re inviting you to come along with us. Watch us Do It. The way we used to. The way everyone used to. We’re a band, and bands just work it out together.”
