Death Cab For Cutie

Story by Jack Foley

DEATH Cab for Cutie have announced two nights at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

The gigs take place on June 8 and 9, 2015. Tickets go on sale on Friday, January 30.

In addition, the band have announced Black Sun as the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album, Kintsugi, which is released on March 30.

The LP marks the first new album from the band since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla.

Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them.

As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an object’s history.
