DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979: Romantic Rights

Cliptip is sad to report that Toronto post punk duo Death From Above 1979 have called it quits. From their website: "I know its been forever since I wrote anything on here. I'm sure by now most of you assume the band isnt 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 finished off our scheduled tour dates because there were good people working for us who relied on us to make a living and buy christmas presents and pay rent etc. We couldnt just cancel everything and leave them out to dry... plus i think we wanted to see if we would reconsider after being out on the road. Our label was really hoping that we would change our minds, so they asked us to keep quiet about the decision for at first. Well, its been quite awhile now and we are still very sure the band wont happen again, so I guess its time to say something." Here at cliptip, I've been a religious archivist of all the videos Jesse and Sebastien released together. This innovative Litebrite video directed by Chris Gismer was the third video ever posted on cliptip. I am sad to see them go, but what a great record they leave behind. Watch the video (qt).
