Indie rock band, Death Cab For Cutie announced details for a new studio album. The album is named Kintsugi and is the eighth LP and will be released on March 31st.
The title is a reference to, as the bassist Nick Harmer said, a “Japanese style of art where they take fractured, broken ceramics and put them back together with very obvious, real gold. It’s making the repair of an object a visual part of its history.”
The frontman Ben Gibbard also added, “This is an opportunity for the band to become something it could only become by losing a founding member. It’s our goal to make records that rank amongst the best work we’ve ever done. I completely respect and understand why people love Transatlanticism or We Have the Facts… or Narrow Stairs. And I would hope that as we move forward, people listen with as little prejudice as they can and try to hear the music for what it is and not what they want it to be.”
