Death Cab for Cutie Biography - Indie Music Legends
Beginning as a solo project for Ben Gibbard, he released one record in 1997, 'You Can Play These Songs With Chords' under what would become the band's name. On deciding to expand the project further, he recruited guitarist Chris Walla, bassist Nick Harmer and Nathan Good as drummer. The band's debut album Something About Airplanes was released in 1998, to favourable reviews in the independent music scene. Second album We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes followed in 2000 with another The Photo Album in 2001, from which three singles including 'A Movie Script Ending' were featured on US TV show The O.C.
The band's fourth album Transatlanticism was to give them their first taste of commercial success with the two lead singles 'The Sounds of Settling' and 'Title and Registration' appearing in numerous soundtracks of popular television shows. This led to a deal with Atlantic Records, resulting in two more extremely successful albums, Plans and Narrow Stairs, with the latter hitting the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart in 2008. 2009 saw the band contribute to The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack with 'Meet Me on the Equinox', helping them to reach a broader audience.
Dropping their guitar centric sound, 2011's Codes and Keys was a new departure for the band. The video for single 'You Are a Tourist' was the first live, scripted, one-take music video ever and contributed to the band's first ever number one. Most recently in the build up to the release of their eighth studio album, it was announced that after 17 years as a member Chris Walla would be leaving the group to pursue solo ambitions. With his influence still firmly present, Kintsugi was released in 2015. See these true artists perform live, by getting your Death Cab for Cutie tickets on StubHub.
