The Prom "Demos 2003" Out Today

We are honored to announce the release of The Prom's Demos 2003 EP – a collection of previously unreleased tracks by the indie-rock favorites of early aughts' Pacific Northwest.

The group of melancholic Seattle-based indie rockers were likened to everyone from Grandaddy to Paul McCartney to their Omaha, NE hometown contemporaries, Bright Eyes. Throughout the early 2000s, they toured with Death Cab for Cutie, The Long Winters, Carissa's Wierd, Starflyer 59, and became known for lending irreverent wit and infectious energy to their live shows, contrasting with the beautiful sincerity and often somber tones of their music.

Friends and loved ones were heartbroken by news of bandleader James Mendenhall's unexpected passing in January of 2019. James was an exceptionally talented pianist, composer and songwriter, and a wonderful human being.

The Prom Demos 2003 EP is available digitally everywhere. Watch the official lyric video for EP track "Rock Lies", created by band member Justin Wilmore using original 2003 tour footage. 04 Oct 2019

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

Her beautiful new album When I say to you Black Lightning will be out on October 18. A follow-up to her striking 2017 debut Playing House, the new album is "a look outward; an exploration of the ways in which we all experience pain, fear and self-delusion, and how we can learn to confront those feelings with boldness".

A video for the first single "Central Booking" premiered this week at The FADER, who called it "the touching story of a flailing tube man".

Pre-order When I say to you Black Lightning (out October 18) now. 24 Jul 2019
