Alternative rock band Death Cab for Cutie is coming to Eugene.
Touring to promote their just-released ninth studio album “Thank You for Today,” the Grammy award nominees are set to perform at Eugene’s Hult Center for the Performing Arts on Monday, September 24.
Their new album features new members Zac Rae (Fiona Apple) and Dave Depper (Ray Lamontagne); both have been touring with the band since 2015.
Their 2015 release “Kintsugi” debuted at #8 on Billboard. The album title was derived from a type of Japanese art, and the philosophy of treating breakage and repair as part of the object, rather than something to disguise.
Death Cab for Cutie’s albums “Plans” (2006), “Narrow Stairs” (2009) and “Codes and Keys” (2012) were all nominated for Best Alternative Music Grammies; their 2007 hit single “I Will Follow You into the Dark” was nominated for best pop performance.
The band’s new “Autumn Love” single is a winning mix of lead singer Ben Gibbard’s vocals, and lush, tastefully layered guitars you’re sure to love. Have a listen:
The band’s second-highest charting U.S. single “Where Soul Meets Body” comes from their fifth album, “Plans.”
The band has been including it in recent setlists:
