Death Cab For Cutie - Thank You For Today (CD, Vinyl, and Cassette) Out Now17 Aug 2018
"Thank You For Today" is the first album not to feature guitarist and producer Chris Walla, which left singer Ben Gibbard feeling that this would be a pivotal album for the band. "I felt that from the very beginning," he said in a recent interview. "We lost a seminal member of the band, somebody who produced virtually all the records we ever made and made huge contributions to the sound of this band. If this band was going to continue, we had to make a really good — if not great — album." With Gibbard at the helm, and with the contributions of new members Dave Depper and Zac Rae on guitar and keyboards respectively, Death Cab have made an album that comes close to perfecting their unique recipe of lovelorn airiness and pop hooks.
