Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

Death From Above 1979 has a pretty stormy history for a band with only two guys: The Toronto-based dance-rock duo of Jesse Keeler and Sebastien Grainger has already gone through a lengthy hiatus — the pair split up in 2006 and re-formed just this year — as well as a name change brought about via a legal battle with the record label DFA. But Death From Above 1979 formally reunited in February, and is set to storm an impressive assortment of summer festivals.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Friday, May 27, Death From Above 1979 helps kick off the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
