Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab for Cutie originally formed in Bellingham, WA, in 1997 with their casette-only Elsinor Records release, You Can Play These Songs With Chords (later expanded and reissued by Barsuk in 2002). The group, which appropriated its name from a song title by '60s UK rock ensemble The Bonzo Dog Band, has consistently released outstanding albums over the years, gaining a wider audience and seeping into the consciousness of mainstream America with the success of their latest albums, the most recent of which were released by Atlantic Records. The band remains a core member of the Barsuk family, however, and we continue to release their albums on vinyl, including the reissues of their first four albums on 180-gram vinyl, as well as 2015's Kintsugi and 2018's Thank You For Today. In addition to the Ben Gibbard lo-fi solo project All-Time Quarterback CD reissue from a few years back, and Ben's more recent Former Lives album, we also released the Chris Walla solo project, Field Manual, and the Steve Fisk & Benjamin Gibbard score to the film Kurt Cobain About A Son.

20th Anniversary Exhibit

As their wildly successful co-headline tour continues to sell out multiple nights at venues from Madison Square Garden to the Hollywood Bowl, The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie have today announced Everything Looks Closer From Far Away: The Exhibit Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Two Landmark Albums: The Postal Service's Give Up & Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism, an exclusive exhibit opening September 29th and running through October 29th at the KEXP Gathering Space in Seattle which is open Monday through Friday from 7am-6pm and Saturday through Sunday from 8am-6pm.

Everything Looks Closer From Far Away is a unique and unprecedented deep dive into the worlds of The Postal Service's Give Up and Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism, two records that began life as the indie rock soundtrack of 2003 and have since become RIAA Platinum-certified classics celebrated on a current 20th anniversary tour of North American arenas and amphitheaters. Bringing it back to where it all began, the pop cultural time capsule will feature murals, artifacts, large-scale installations, an in-depth timeline of both records and more.

The historic Give Up/Transatlanticism 20th Anniversary Tour will land at Seattle's Climate Pledge Arena (right next door to the exhibit) for two sold out shows on October 6 and 7.
