Boston, MA (May 2, 2018) – The Boch Center, The Madison Square Garden Company and Live Nation announced that eight-time Grammy® Award-nominated Death Cab for Cutie will play the Boch Center Wang Theatre on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 7:30PM. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 4 at 10:00AM.
Death Cab for Cutie recently finished recording their highly anticipated new album, and recently unveiled the first glimpse via a teaser clip featuring one of the tracks. The album will arrive in late summer and marks the first Death Cab for Cutie release to see long time bandmates Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer and Jason McGerr joined in the studio by new members Dave Depper (Menomena, Fruit Bats, Corin Tucker, Ray Lamontagne) and Zac Rae (My Brightest Diamond, Fiona Apple, Lana Del Rey, Gnarls Barkley). Depper and Rae have both been part of Death Cab’s touring band since 2015.
Immediately hailed as one of indie rock’s most compelling and creative collectives, Death Cab for Cutie’s milestone debut album, “SOMETHING ABOUT AIRPLANES,” arrived in 1998 via the Seattle-based independent label, Barsuk. The band enjoyed a long relationship with Barsuk before making their Atlantic Records debut with 2005’s fifth studio release, “PLANS.” The album proved the band’s popular breakthrough, earning RIAA platinum certification as well as spawning the chart-topping singles, “Soul Meets Body” and “I Will Follow You Into The Dark.” The latter track was honored with a Grammy® nomination as “Best Pop Performance By Duo Or Group With Vocals,” with “PLANS” receiving the nod as “Best Alternative Album.” “DIRECTIONS,” the 2006 DVD companion to “PLANS,” earned an additional Grammy® nod as “Best Longform Music Video.”
One dollar from each ticket purchased through the band’s website will go towards The Aurora Commons – a Seattle based non-profit organization which offers a safe space for unhoused neighbors to rest, prepare a meal, connect to resources and collectively create a healthy and vibrant community.
