On September 9th, Toronto punks Death From Above 1979 released their first album in ten years, The Physical World. Now you can watch the first music video from the record, for the dynamic "Trainwreck 1979,” above.

The video is a glimpse inside the world of one particular fan. It opens with her trying to learn the song's opening bass riff, before heading to their show. The footage of the concert showcases a fun, high-energy experience as everyone in the crowd gets lost in the music and the atmosphere. The video intersperses the day-to-day life of the central character, which includes skateboarding barefoot around town and following the band on tour, with the performance footage and ends with the girl going back to finish trying to master the bass riff. The clip works well as an artistic and realistic portrayal of fandom and the effect a band's music can have on people.

You can watch the band perform the song live on Late Night With David Letterman right here on Zumic. The Physical World is out now on Last Gang Records and is available on Amazon.
