Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and NY dates added

Sonic assailants Death From Above have announced that they will hit the road with their friends Black Rebel Motorcycle Club for a co-headlining U.S. tour this fall with support from Deap Vally. The tour kicks off on October 11th in Cleveland and crisscrosses the country culminating in Boston on November 12th. Apart from Boston, additional dates have been added in Chicago, Los Angeles and Huntington, NY as well. This will be one the loudest and most anticipated tours in one of the most dramatic years in American history. To underscore that fact, is it any coincidence that Death From Above and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will descend upon NYC’s Terminal 5 on November 8th, Election Night 2016? You decide…
Tickets are on sale this Friday, July 28th For more information go to: http://deathfromabove1979.com

Death From Above has this to say about the upcoming co-headline tour w/BRMC & Deap Vally:

“Dear friends, fans, headbangers and shoe shakers, our fall tour with BRMC and Deap Vally is expanding! We’ve just added shows in Boston, Huntington NY, LA and Chicago. Be there, be square, be whatever, we don’t care. Just come! Bring a friend or a lover. Bring your mother. Baby brother. Don’t bring babies. No dogs. Bring a picture of your dog. Wear a shirt with a picture of your cousin on it. Take the bus. Have a beer/juice/water. Call a cab. Carpool with your neighbor. Pet a cat on the street if it lets you, but don’t be too pushy.”

‘Sound of the Cities. Eine popmusikalische Entdeckungsreise’.

Where was Punk invented? How did Drum ‘n’ Bass evolve? What was the atmosphere in Hippie-paradise San Francisco like in the Sixties? Music cities have a special vibe and are the birth place of legends.

German journalists Ole Loeding and Philipp Krohn have visited the 24 most important pop capitals and asked 160 artists, producers and experts why these places are unique.

Music pioneers like The Velvet Underground, Can, Tortoise, Allen Toussaint, Kurtis Blow, Eagle Eye Cherry, Faith No More, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Urge Overkill provided some deep insights into the music scenes of their city.

24 portraits of cities like NYC, London, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, Chicago etc. and their musical legacy are the content of Loeding’s and Krohn’s new book:
‘Sound of the Cities. Eine popmusikalische Entdeckungsreise’.

It was released on Wednesday, September 23rd, and costs €22,95 (*Only available in German so far. They’re doing their best to get an English version out there as well.)

“I love San Francisco and I love L.A. Great places. They have romanticism for music and art in their own way. But I can give a shit about giving them credit for what we do. I don’t think they deserve it.” (…)

“San Francisco is a very cool city to be in. The problem with cool cities – if it’s Austin or New York or San Francisco, those are particularly cool cities – the top five places in the world are usually incredibly cold to a local band in trying to get something going.” (…)

“The most credit I can give the city is that we were doing the opposite of anything it wanted us to do. That’s the nature of your environment when you are growing up and you fucking hate everything around you. And your parents, school, teachers and the cops on the street: You just want to push it all away.”
— Robert Levon Been
