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 recent reissues of their first four albums on 180-gram vinyl, as well as 2015's Kintsugi. In addition to the Ben Gibbard lo-fi solo project All-Time Quarterback CD reissue from a few years back, 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.

Thank You For Today

Death Cab for Cutie has announced the release of their upcoming ninth studio album. Thank You for Today arrives everywhere on Friday, August 17th.

With the announcement comes a new video from the album, "Gold Rush", directed by Alex Southam (alt-J, Mumford & Sons). The visual features Ben Gibbard performing the song amidst an increasingly crowded cityscape. Death Cab will make their debut performance of "Gold Rush" on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday, June 21st — check local listings. 13 Jun 2018
