The Physical World, the second critically-applauded album from DFA 1979 in a decade, has been immediately embraced around the globe. Recent live shows have been explosive events that have the media raving:

 “Returning a decade later, they’re still crushing violent, angular riffs, but they’re also writing catchier songs. A throwback to a throwback that’s better the second time around.” – Rolling Stone Magazine

“The most shocking thing about The Physical World is that it was worth the wait. The Physical World is a triumphant statement. Welcome back fellas, you have been missed.” – Alternative Press Magazine

 “Built from scouring bass riffs, propulsive grooves and disarmingly tender lyrics that seem to contradict the noise. – The Los Angeles Times

“The energy between the two musicians was off the charts…If you closed your eyes, it was hard to imagine the performance was being handled by only two people.” – Diffusser.FM


DFA 1979 will hit the road this fall in support of The Physical World. They are not to be missed. Need proof?  Check out their recent performance of Trainwreck1979,” from Letterman and view the official video for “Trainwreck 1979” here.
