Not really, just keep reading. Since their release of The Physical World back in 2014, Death From Above-- yes, they 86'd the 1979-- have dropped their latest Outrage is Now! and are back in the tour mix. With the release of their radio ready single, "Freeze Me" back in June, DFA hit some of the summer festival circuit, playing select Canadian festivals and Riot Fest Chicago.

Gracing Englewood's Gothic Theater Friday night, DFA, decked out with bassist Jesse Keeler's signature acrylic bass guitars and backdropped by their trunk-cated DFA silhouettes, the dynamic duo got Denver to dance their asses off. It took no more than 3 tracks for the mosh pit to form, and fans didn't dare stop before encore.

"Audience was [insert fire emoji]! Makes a difference!" DFA said after their set. For a city that has a rep in some music circles for being hard to win over, Denver sure did show the love for Death from Above...and for openers The Beaches.

Also hailing from DFA (& Drake & Beiber & Avril) land of Toronto, Canada, this quartet served fierce and mighty with tracks like "Money" and "Gold."

Both bands wrap up tour together next month in Toronto.
