Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab for Cutie announce "The Blue EP"

Death Cab for Cutie has officially announced the release of their upcoming EP, The Blue EP, out September 6. The announcement comes with the release of first track, "Kids in '99", written as a tribute to the three people who lost their lives in the 1999 Bellingham Olympic Pipeline explosion, "a tragedy that really affected me while we were living in Bellingham," in the words of Ben Gibbard, who adds, "After all these years I felt it was worthy of its own folk song."

This past Friday, the band received critical acclaim for "Do You Remember," a track from Chance the Rapper's highly-anticipated new album ("The Big Day") on which they are featured. TIME highlighted the track in their "5 Best Songs of the Week," exclaiming: "On 'Do You Remember,' a laid-back, nostalgic jam, rock band Death Cab for Cutie shows up to set a dreamy, throwback mood." The band recently wrapped the latest leg of their North American headline tour, including performances at iconic venues from New York's Forest Hills to a sold-out show at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The final leg of the tour will include stops in San Diego, Portland, and Redmond, WA as well as highly-anticipated shows at Sonoma Harvest Music Festival and LA's Hollywood Bowl. This past weekend, Death Cab for Cutie performed at the annual Fuji Rock Festival, held at Naeba Ski Resort in Niigata Prefecture, Japan. 30 Jul 2019
