Ben Gibbards scores soundtrack for “Laggies”

As the movie gears up to be released this month, producers of the romantic comedy Laggies announced the release date for the score, which has been composed by Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard.

As the most recent work of Lynn Shelton, Laggies features Keira Knightley, the movie is a “coming of age story about a 28-year-old woman stuck in permanent adolescence that lies to her fiancé about going on a retreat and spends the time hanging out with friends instead.” The cast also by Sam Rockwell, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ellie Kemper, Jeff Garlin, and Mark Webber.

With 22 tracks on the soundtrack, it will digitally be available on November 4th and November 10th on CD. This is Gibbard’s theatrical score debut, and I is described as “Seattle-centric,” with a mix of moody and upbeat indie rock that is parallel with the film’s comedic, and gut-wrenching view of friendship, love, maturity and development.
