Heads Up is Toronto duo Death from Above 1979's debut recording, a six song EP released by Vancouver label Ache Records on December 15, 2002. It was later re-issued because of the success of their first full-length album, You're a Woman, I'm a Machine. The original press run was 1004 copies; 200 on clear and the rest on black vinyl, and the reissue was 2000 copies on black vinyl.

At the time of the release of this EP, the band was still simply known as Death From Above but following the release of their debut album, DFA Records issued a cease and desist letter requiring them to change their name.

On the original pressing, an incorrect URL for the band's website was given, and both releases list the song "Too Much Love" as "To Much Love".

Crystal Castles sampled Dead Womb on their song "Untrust Us".
