Watch Death From Above’s Bodybuilder-filled New Video for Single “Freeze Me”
Death From Above, who recently removed the 1979 from their moniker (the band added 1979 to their name in 2004 before releasing their first album for legal reasons), have released a music video for their new song “Freeze Me”. The video, directed by Corey Adams (http://www.coreyadams.ca/), features a group of bodybuilders living an apparently opulent lifestyle in a mansion while some very old television sets depict a crumbling world outside. The two members of DFA also show up as butlers to serve some Pogo’s on a silver platter. Watch the whole thing below. The song marks the band’s first release since 2016’s Live at Third Man Records, which followed their 2014 release of The Physical World.
