Death Cab for Cutie

Alt-rock stalwarts Death Cab For Cutie are hitting the road this summer in support of their seventh full-length LP entitled, Codes and Keys, and will visit Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in Columbus on July 27. The new album was released on May 31 with Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine) taking the production reigns from band member Chris Walla.
According to Walla, the record will focus more on synths and less on the signature “Death Cab guitar sound.” But, said Walla, “It’s not that the guitars are completely absent this time around, just that other junk will take its place to fill up the space.” In previewing some of the new material I think it’s safe to say that the “other junk” that Walla refers to may include more electronic atmospherics and keyboards than long-time fans are used to hearing. One thing that hasn’t changed a bit is Ben Gibbard’s singular talent for constructing beautifully melodic verses that build to the perfect chorus. Having seen Death Cab a couple of times in small venues I’m very interested to see how their sound translates to the much larger outdoor expanse of the LC. Opening act Frightened Rabbit are no slouches either, so don’t be late. Death Cab for Cutie will perform Wednesday, July 27 in Columbus at the LC. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $32 in advance and $34 DOS. For more information, visit www.promowestlive.com.
