Death from Above 1979 in Vancouver Wednesday night. The show was the first of two at the Vogue Theatre.

The band is on tour for its second album, The Physical World. Following the Vancouver shows, the band is heading east to complete the 15-date tour, which comes months after the fall release of the album.

But that’s nothing compared to the wait endured by fans of the group’s debut. The Physical World comes 10 years after the release of the duo’s first album, You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine. That record made the duo of Jesse F. Keeler (bass, synths, backing vocals) and Sebastien Grainger (vocals and drums) an underground/over ground sensation. DFA 1979 broke up in 2006 while the first album and subsequent remix album continued to sell. They reunited in 2011 and began to perform live.

The band is also the subject of a recent documentary, Life After Death From Above 1979.
