Death Cab For Cutie
Grammy-nominated indie rockers Death Cab For Cutie perform at the Mann for one show only Friday, August 5th in support of their new album, Codes & Keys, in stores May 31st.
Long known for their ingenious and imaginative videos, Death Cab for Cutie recently made history with the companion clip for their extraordinary new single, "You Are A Tourist" which is already ascending Billboard's "Alternative Songs" & "Rock Songs" tallies. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Tim Nackashi (TV On The Radio, OK Go, Elvis Costello, Radiohead), and conceptualized by frequent collaborator Aaron Stewart-Ahn, "You Are A Tourist" is the first-ever live, scripted, single-take music video to be broadcast as it is filmed.

Codes & Keys marks the band’s first all-new album since 2009, which saw the release of the single, “Meet Me On The Equinox” (featured on The Twilight Saga: New Moon – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) as well as The Open Door EP, which later earned them their third consecutive Grammy Award nomination for “Best Alternative Album.” That collection came hot on the heels of the RIAA gold-certified “NARROW STAIRS,” which made a stunning debut atop the Billboard 200 upon its May 2008 release. Two Grammy nods followed the album’s release, including “Best Alternative Album” and “Best Rock Song,” for the hit single, “I Will Possess Your Heart.”
Death Cab for Cutie is Ben Gibbard (guitars, keyboards, vocals), Chris Walla (guitars, keyboards), Nick Harmer (bass) & Jason McGerr (drums).
