BRAND NEW *PRE-ORDER*
Death Cab for Cutie has officially announced the release of their upcoming ninth studio album. “Thank You for Today” arrives everywhere on Friday, August 17th.
“Thank You for Today” was produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Fiona Apple, Franz Ferdinand, Muse), who also produced the band’s last album, the GRAMMY® nominated “KINTSUGI.” “Thank You for Today” marks the first Death Cab for Cutie release to see long time bandmates Gibbard, Nick Harmer, and Jason McGerr joined in the studio by new members Dave Depper (Menomena, Fruit Bats, Corin Tucker, Ray Lamontagne) and Zac Rae (My Brightest Diamond, Fiona Apple, Lana Del Rey, Gnarls Barkley). Depper and Rae have both been part of Death Cab’s touring band since 2015.
Death Cab for Cutie will celebrate their new album with a much anticipated fall tour. The dates – which see the 8x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band playing intimate venues and theatres across North America – begin September 24th at Eugene, OR’s Hult Center for the Performing Arts and travel through mid-October. One dollar from each ticket purchased through the band’s website will go towards The Aurora Commons – a Seattle based non-profit organization which offers a safe space for unhoused neighbors to rest, prepare a meal, connect to resources, and collectively create a healthy and vibrant community. Support on most dates comes from Charly Bliss; Cold War Kids will support on September 27th. For complete details, please visit www.deathcabforcutie.com.
What’s more, Death Cab for Cutie have also recently unveiled plans for a very special free concert in their beloved Seattle commemorating the 90th anniversary of the city’s iconic venue, The Paramount. Hosted by comedian Hari Kondabolu, “The Paramount 90th Anniversary Celebration: The People's Theatre” is set for Saturday, June 23rd – complete details can be found HERE.
