Death From Above 1979 split
Duo admit they weren't talking by the end


Death From Above 1979 have split up after six years.

The band released their debut album 'You're A Woman And I'm A Machine' last year before following it up with remixes and b-sides album 'Romance Bloody Romance' in February 2006.

Writing on their official website, bassist Jesse F. Keeler said: "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.

"We started as a punk band with pop aspirations and we met every goal we set for ourselves. A few weeks ago, the album finally went gold in Canada and that was the final mark I really wanted to reach."

The bassist revealed that the band have grown apart in recent years to the point where they rarely spoke to each other.

He added: "Over the last 3 years of touring, Sebastien (Grainger) and I had grown apart to such an extent that the only real time we spoke was just before we would play and during interviews. We both changed so much that the people we were by the end of it, probably wouldn't have been friends if they were to meet for the first time again. It's a totally normal function of growing up."

Keeler is currently working with Josh Homme on Queens Of The Stone Age's next album.

There is blood on all the shoes you've worn
From the people you've been stepping on
There is blood in all the things you say
I won't hate you if you go away

There is blood on our hands again
From the bedroom is where we will
bring it back to the start again
bring it back to the love we had

There is blood on our hands again
From the bedroom is where will
Bring it back to the love we had
Bring it back to...

I'm leaving while you turn away
In the basement that's where I'm gonna stay
From the bedroom where we're running from
There's a sequel to the things I've done

There is blood on our hands again
