Death From Above 1979 record live album at Jack White’s Third Man Records

The imaginitavely titled 'Death From Above 1979: Live From Third Man Records' will be released April 22nd.
Last July Death From Above 1979 were invited to Jack White’s Third Man Records Studio to record an album straight to tape and now, this Friday 22nd April, ‘Death From Above 1979: Live From Third Man Record’ will be released. (See what they did there?)





“We’ve always been wary of live recording experiences because they can end up so sterile and flat sounding and they hardly ever translate the feeling of the actual show. The feeling of the moment,” explain the band. “When we were asked to record Live At Third Man Records we agreed without hesitation. If there is one person who knows about feeling the moment, it’s Jack White. He’s the patron saint of vibes. We cut two twenty minute long sets straight to acetate. No second chances. Terrifying but alive. Third Man were such phenomenal hosts and the audience went bananas with us. It was such an honour to be a part of. The whole thing was such a rush, it almost feels like a dream.”





If that wasn’t exciting enough…





“Oh yeah, Mick Jagger was there. Did we mention that we went out to dinner with Jack and Mick after and then went bowling until 3am? It’s also worth noting that Jack got the highest score followed by Sebastien. Mick and Jesse tied.”





Below, check out a recording of ‘Right On Frankenstein‘ lifted from the session.
