Barsuk is extremely excited to announce the vinyl reissue of Death Cab for Cutie's first three studio albums, Something About Airplanes (1998), We Have The Facts And We're Voting Yes (2000) and The Photo Album (2001), as well as the cassette reissue of DCfC's debut You Can Play These Songs With Chords (1997). In celebration, Barsuk is offering up pre-order packages that include album inspired t-shirts.

With the exception of a limited-edition boxset released by Artists in Residence, We Have The Facts And We're Voting Yes and The Photo Album have been out of print on vinyl since their original pressing and Something About Airplanes has not been in print for several years. This reissue marks the first time they're available separately on high-quality 180 gram vinyl. Each LP includes an MP3 download code and is presented with its original artwork.

The reissue of Death Cab for Cutie's debut, You Can Play These Songs With Chords, returns the album to its original format — cassette. Originally released in 1997 by Bellingham, WA's Elsinor Records with two different j-card cover art versions, Chords was previously made available by Barsuk on CD with new artwork in 2002 along with extra bonus material as You Can Play These Songs With Chords + 10, but this release marks its first cassette availability in many years. This reissue includes an MP3 download code and artwork replicated from both versions of the original cassette release, along with new liner notes from Elsinor's Joe Chilcote. ·read less·
