Last summer Jack White gave Jesse Keeler and Sebsatien Grainger a call and said, wanna come to Tennessee and play a show at Third Man Records’ famed Blue Room? YUP, they said!

A statement from Death From Above 1979 explains that they’re, “Wary of live recording experiences because they can end up so sterile and flat sounding,” but they had no qualms putting their trust in the Third Man team.

“When we were asked to record Live at Third Man Records we agreed without hesitation. If there is one person who knows about feeling the moment, it’s Jack White. He’s the patron saint of vibes. We cut two twenty minute long sets straight to acetate. No second chances. Terrifying but alive. Third Man were such phenomenal hosts and the audience went bananas with us. It was such an honour to be a part of. The whole thing was such a rush, it almost feels like a dream.”
