The book is not only a visual documentation of the final days of one of the longest-standing, most vital venues in the DIY community of early 2000s NYC, "We've Come So Far" offers a window into the dedication and hard work that go into creating a space whose primary focus is to nurture artistic expression and fellowship. Throughout the years, the venue hosted a multitude of bands that went on to enjoy international acclaim, including A Place To Bury Strangers, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Future Islands, Jeff the Brotherhood and Lightning Bolt, among so many more. The resulting photographs focus on the lives of the residents, the work of the artists and musicians, and the elation of the audience, and draw attention to the importance that spaces like Death By Audio provide for their communities, and what stands to be lost in their absence..

The book was recently featured in The New Yorker, and has received other great press from Slate, Feature Shoot, Pitchfork, and Bedford+Boweryamong others.

ABOUT DEATH BY AUDIO:
Death By Audio was the beloved underground venue that existed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn from 2005 until 2014, during the early-aughts Williamsburg heyday as a hub of DIY music and artistic activity in NYC. Housing a music venue, a guitar effects pedal company, a recording studio, and the home of over 10 artists and musicians, DBA established a reputation for nurturing the underground music community and curating shows with the best emerging bands from around the country.
Upon learning the inevitable news that their lease would not be renewed in 2014, the creative forces behind Death By Audio threw an epic, 75-day long party celebrating everything that DBA had come to represent over its near-decade of existence. The venue booked a nightly concert calendar of stacked bills including many bands that had once played and long since outgrown the tiny room, including Lightning Bolt, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Future Islands, Jeff The Brotherhood, and A Place To Bury Strangers. Additionally, the residents of DBA programmed over two months of special events designed to bring the music and arts communities together in celebration of the DIY ethos in which the venue was founded.
