Death Cab for Cutie gear up for the release of their upcoming ninth studio album, Thank You for Today. The album was produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Fiona Apple, Franz Ferdinand, Muse), who also produced the band’s last album, 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.
“Gold Rush” – the album’s first single – was released with a splash as the 8x GRAMMY® nominated band made their debut performance of the new song on CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
