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·

Death Cab for Cutie is excited to announce Live 2012, a limited-edition live double LP documenting the band's 2012 tour with the Magik*Magik Orchestra and available on Record Store Day exclusively on vinyl via Barsuk Records.

The 2012 tour was a one-of-a-kind spring trek through intimate venues and historic theaters in North America with the Seattle, WA quartet joining forces with the celebrated San Francisco orchestra for a string of unforgettable evenings. The collaboration resulted in brilliant reinterpretations and wonderfully lush orchestrations of songs from across the entire Death Cab catalog, from their early Barsuk releases to their latest Atlantic Records full-length Codes and Keys. The band previously collaborated with the Magik*Magik Orchestra (who have also worked with artists such as Mike Patton, John Vanderslice, The Walkmen and The Dodos) on their VH1 Storytellers appearance.

Live 2012 includes highlights from several concerts along the 27-date tour. Available exclusively on 180-gram double vinyl, with a download code for high-quality MP3s, this pressing is limited to 4,000 copies worldwide and will be part of Record Store Day 2014, the annual celebration of independent record stores, on Saturday, April 19th. ·read less·

Barsuk is excited to announce that Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism (10th Anniversary Edition) is now streaming at NPR First Listen.

In celebration of the classic 2003 album's 10th birthday, Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism will be made available on vinyl after several years out of print. Both the vinyl reissue and a digital-only Transatlanticism (10th Anniversary Edition) are set for October 29, 2013 release.

The digital Anniversary Edition — and the album MP3 download included with the vinyl — will both include the original demos for each of the album's 11 songs, none of which has ever been released before. They are an intimate peek into the landmark album's genesis, and many are drastically different from the beloved final studio versions.

Interested listeners can get the demos in four ways. In addition to their availability as part of the vinyl MP3 download and the digital 10th Anniversary Edition, the demos will also be released as a separate low-priced digital release titled Transatlanticism Demos for fans who already own the original album. Additionally, the demos will be added as a special bonus to the download codes included in the Barsuk Years vinyl box set released earlier this year by Artist in Residence. ·read less·
