Death From Above 1979’s last album, ‘Is 4 Lovers’, came out in 2021. In a four-star review, NME described it as “their best album since their debut”, adding: “The Canadian dance-punk duo tackle love and modern society of their gnarly fourth record. They still pack a punch, but now the bruise is more colourful”

Speaking to NME around the release, Grainger said he saw ‘Is 4 Lovers’ as marking a thematic return to the concerns of ‘You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine’.

“This is a record where instead of looking outward as much as I had been on the last two records, I was looking inwards,” he said. “We’ve linked this record to the first material only because for me, at that time, I was only aware of the little circle around me.

“The first EP [2002’s ‘Heads Up’] and the first record are about my family and my friends and nights out in Toronto. My approach to writing then was to write something that means something to me, and if it means something to me hopefully it’ll mean something to other people. I’ve gone back to that.”

The duo will also perform at Bilbao BBK Live in Spain this year.
