GRAMMY nominated DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE is an alternative rock band formed in Bellingham, WA in 1997. Band members include Ben Gibbard (vocals, guitar, piano), Nick Harmer (bass), Dave Depper (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Zac Rae (keyboards, guitar) and Jason McGerr (drums). Made popular by their use of instrumentation as well as Gibbard’s unique voice and lyricism, the band has released eight full-length studio albums over the last 18 years. The band’s fifth studio album, Plans, remained on the Billboard 200 Chart for a year, going Platinum. The album’s success was driven by three popular singles: “Soul Meets Body,” “Crooked Teeth,” and “I Will Follow You into The Dark.”
The band released their eigth studio album in April 2015. Named Kintsugi, after a philosophy derived from the Japanese art of repairing cracked ceramics with gold, this album was the band’s first time recording with a producer other than their own Chris Walla. Walla helped shape Death Cab’s sound since the band’s inception. Kintsugi earned them a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Rock Album in 2016.
