Death Cab For Cutie Unveil New Album, ‘Kintsugi’

dcfc

Now a three-piece since the departure of former guitarist and producer, Chris Walla, Death Cab For Cutie have remained unwavering in their attempts to continually express their love for music and share it with their supporters. Produced by Rich Costey (Sigur Ros, Frank Turner, TV On The Radio) and due out on March 31 via Atlantic Records, DCFC will be releasing Kintsugi, an eleven-track album which translates to, in the words of bassist Nick Harmer, “a Japanese style of art where they take fractured, broken ceramics and put them back together with very obvious, real gold. It’s making the repair of an object a visual part of its history.”

The band’s frontman, Ben Gibbard, shares with Rolling Stone: “This is an opportunity for the band to become something it could only become by losing a founding member,” Gibbard says. “It’s our goal to make records that rank amongst the best work we’ve ever done. I completely respect and understand why people love Transatlanticism or We Have the Facts… or Narrow Stairs. And I would hope that as we move forward, people listen with as little prejudice as they can and try to hear the music for what it is and not what they want it to be.”
