Following the release of their ninth studio album, Seattle's influential indie-rock luminaries return to Australia.
Seattle’s influential indie-rock luminaries Death Cab for Cutie return to Australia for a special concert in Hamer Hall as part of a much anticipated tour. Adored for their shimmering songwriting and evocative alt-rock style, the veteran musicians will perform their recent ninth studio album Thank You for Today alongside their impressive back-catalogue of hits.
Their first studio album in three years, Thank You for Today, is the sound of Death Cab for Cutie expanding and refining, a band twenty years into its evolution. Together with new members – guitarist Dave Depper and keyboardist Zac Rae – Gibbard, Nick Harmer and Jason McGerr have pushed their music in new directions, further experimenting with pop production techniques and sampling Yoko Ono’s 1972 track “Mind Train” in the album’s lead single “Gold Rush”. The result is an anthemic, life-affirming album that “marks the stirring opening of a new chapter in this band’s already storied history” (DIY).
After forming in 1997, the Washington State locals were propelled from the DYI indie music scene into pop culture history in 2003 when their generation-defining fourth album Transatlanticism and Grammy-nominated fifth album Plans (2005), the first of nine Grammy Award nominations, were used to soundtrack popular US television drama The O.C. Death Cab’s melancholic tracks like “A Lack of Colour” and “I Will Follow You into the Dark” introduced adolescents the world over to the expressive power of indie music.
Don’t miss your chance to experience the adored songwriting of this genre-defining band in the surrounds of Hamer Hall this March.
