Benjamin Gibbard

Other cities, other plans; different friends, different dreams; former loves, former lives. After twenty-plus years in Death Cab for Cutie, Benjamin Gibbard keeps opening new doors, with solo projects, tours and home livestreams, most recently performing for the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum virtual concert Space Songs: Through the Distance.

Barsuk releases new Benjamin Gibbard single "Proxima B"

We're excited to be releasing the latest single by Benjamin Gibbard, "Proxima B", available digitally everywhere.

This is the first time the fully fleshed-out studio version of "Proxima B" has been released. It's paired with b-side "Filler," a revelatory piano-vocal cover that brings Gibbard's trademark melancholy to the straight-edge DC hardcore classic by Minor Threat.

The Death Cab for Cutie frontman recently debuted live stripped-down acoustic versions of "Proxima B" during the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum virtual concert Space Songs: Through the Distance and during his weekly livestream performances from his home in Seattle. The studio recording of "Promixa B" was mixed by fellow Seattleite Michael Lerner (of Telekinesis), who also played drums and sang backing vocals on the track. Limited-edition 7" vinyl and cassette versions of the single will also be released via Gibbard's long-dormant label imprint Bedside Recordings (which last released two long-out-of-print split-singles in 2003 from The Mountain Goats/John Vanderslice and David Bazan/Casey Foubert). 28 May 2020
