Atlantic recording group Death Cab for Cutie has unveiled another highlight of their upcoming ninth studio album, “Thank You for Today.” First featured this spring in a special teaser clip heralding the new LP, “I Dreamt We Spoke Again” is available today at all DSPs and streaming services; an official lyric video is streaming HERE. “Thank You for Today” arrives at all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, August 17th and is available for pre-order now.  All pre-orders are joined by instant grat downloads of “I Dreamt We Spoke Again” and the project’s first single, “Gold Rush,” also available today for individual purchase at all DSPs and streaming services HERE.

“Thank You for Today” was produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Fiona Apple, Franz Ferdinand, Muse), following his previous collaboration with Death Cab for Cutie on the band’s 2015 GRAMMY® Award-nominated “KINTSUGI.” The LP marks the first Death Cab for Cutie release to see long time bandmates Ben 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.

Death Cab for Cutie will celebrate “Thank You for Today” with a much-anticipated fall tour. The dates – which see the 8x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band playing intimate venues and theatres across North America – begin September 24th at Eugene, OR’s Hult Center for the Performing Arts and travel through mid-October (see attached itinerary). Support on most dates comes from Charly Bliss; Cold War Kids will support on September 27th. For complete details, please visit

One dollar from each ticket purchased through the band’s website will go towards The Aurora Commons – a Seattle based non-profit organization which offers a safe space for unhoused neighbors to rest, prepare a meal, connect to resources, and collectively create a healthy and vibrant community.

Meanwhile, Death Cab for Cutie are currently poised to embark on a series of headline shows and festival performances, including special dates at Salt Lake City’s Red Butte Garden (August 2nd) and Boise, ID’s Summerfield Concerts at Memorial Stadium (August 3rd), both supported by the newly returned Pedro the Lion. The itinerary further includes Travelers Rest, curated by The Decemberists at Missoula, MT’s Big Sky Brewing Company Amphitheatre on August 4th and 5th, Long Beach, CA’s ALT 98.7 Summer Camp (August 12th), Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival in Las Vegas (September 21-23), Santiago, Chile’s Fauna Primavera (November 10th), Buenos Aires, Argentina’s Personal Fest 2018 (November 11th), and São Paulo, Brazil’s Popload Festival (November 15th) and Mexico City, Mexico’s Corona Capital 2018 (November 18th). As if all that weren’t enough, an epic European headline run begins January 24th, 2019 at Dublin, Ireland’s landmark Olympia Theatre and then makes stops across the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.
