death-cab-for-cutie-kintsugiKintsugi, the new album from Death Cab For Cutie, is in stores now- but you can stream the whole thing for free RIGHT NOW!

This is Death Cab’s final album with founding guitarist Chris Walla, who has since left the band, and frontman Ben Gibbard says that Chris’s departure is, “very bittersweet, but also, frankly very liberating. I think that when you’re making a record with a band and you’ve been doing it as long as we have, sometimes you do have to tiptoe around people and make sure you don’t hurt their feelings if you tell them that something’s not working. You know that you’re gonna be living with this person for the next year and a half, playing these songs. Particularly Chris and I’s relationship has been a complicated one over the years and I think that sometimes neither of us have said the thing we needed to say at the time because we were fearful of setting one another off.”
