Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Death Cab’s Codes & Keys

Odds are Death Cab For Cutie would probably like to downplay the significance of the role The O.C. played in the explosion of their popularity leading them to sign with a major label. But prior to the release of their 2003 album Transatlanticism, and Seth Cohen exclaiming his love for the band on the now famed Chrismukkah episode of the show, the Seattle-based act was on the small indie label Barsuk and was mostly known amongst emo music fans. Following the move over to Atlantic, Ben Gibbard & Co. released their breakout album with 2004’s Plans, which sold over a million copies and earned the band a Grammy nod for Best Alternative Album.

On Thursday, Death Cab will return to their roots by playing a short string of intimate club gigs leading up to the May 31 released of their seventh studio album, Codes And Keys. Last week, the band released a music video for the album’s lead track Home Is A Fire, which was shot in Los Angeles and features the work of guerrilla street artist Shepard Fairey. Check it out…

DC4C will kick off their proper world tour on June 26 in Munich, Germany, and return to the states to play larger venues roughly a month later with HT faves Frightened Rabbit holding down the opening slot.
