Canadian power rock duo Death From Above 1979 have been somewhat quiet recently. They toured alongside Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in 2016, but aside from that they haven’t given much of an update on any follow up to their 2014 album, The Physical World.

On Monday morning, the band shared a brief, 16-second black and white clip which shows members Sebastien Grainger and Jesse Keeler working in the studio. An unknown audio track plays over the images while accompanied by the post’s copy, which just reads, “6.9.17.” The video comes a day after the band also updated the profile image on their official Facebook page, removing the previous picture which had been the cover art of their last album. Both moves should lead fans to believe that the band is gearing up to start their next album cycle here in 2017.

This would be the first update on any recorded music that band has given in a while. They are scheduled to perform at some selected festivals across Canada this summer, including appearances at Montreal’s Osheaga, as well as Chicago’s Riot Fest in the fall.
