Death Cab for Cutie Introduce Us to a “Black Sun”


Last week, footage of Death Cab for Cutie playing two new songs from their upcoming record surfaced online and now, a week or so later, the band have released the lyric video for the first single off of the group’s eighth studio record, Kintsugi.

The lead single is a song titled “Black Sun” which can be heard below.

As if a new song wasn’t enough, the band also announced they will be heading out on tour later this year.

The tour will begin on April 10 in Mesa, AZ at Quail Run Park and hit up several cities across North America as well as a handful of dates in Europe, before wrapping up on July 12 at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood.

For those concerned about who will fill in for former guitarist Chris Walla, who left the group, officially, at the end of last year, the band have confirmed that touring members Dave Depper and Zac Rae will fill the void during the tour.

Kintsugi will be released on March 31 through Atlantic Records while the full itinerary for the upcoming tour can be seen below.
