for Cutie Background
Death Cab for Cutie initially started out as a side project for Ben Gibbard, a singer/guitarist
and engineering student at Western Washington University, dividing his time between his music and studies. He took a hiatus
from his band, Pinwheel, to cut his own album brimming with solo material in the summer of 1997. Assisted by producer Chris
Walla, the collaboration culminated into an eight-song cassette called You Can Play These Songs with Chords. Locally, the
tape became a hit, and Gibbard turned to his circle of friends to found a band with the intent to take the songs to the live
stage. Nathan Good (drummer) and Gibbard's roommate, Nick Harmer (bassist) joined in on Gibbard's musical quest, and Walla
became the band's lead guitarist. The newly formed lineup became known as Death Cab for Cutie and inked a deal with Seattle's
Barsuk Records within just a year of its inception. Something About Airplanes served as the quartet's studio premiere in 1998.
The album featured tunes from the tape, You Can Play These Songs with Chords, along with pop tunes aligned with the sound
of Built to Spill.
Walla and Gibbard continued to work on their own pet projects but that didn't stop Death Cab for
Cutie from stepping into the studio to work on their sophomore album, We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes. Just before
the album's release, Good exited the band, and Michael Schorr took his place. The Forbidden Love EP came out in 2000 as well,
and The Photo Album, the band's third project, arrived in 2001. At this point, the band had cultivated a tremendous following,
and in 2002, You Can Play These Songs with Chords was re-released in 2002 with even more original material. Transatlanticism
dropped in 2003 along with the announcement of another drummer, Jason McGerr. This album served as a milestone in the band's
career, drawing notice from music execs and consumers. In fact, the band's music was included in multiple episodes of The
O.C. A live disc was released called The John Byrd E.P. Eventually, the band signed on with Atlantic Records in November 2004.
Plans arrived the following summer and landed at No. 4. It claimed a spot on the Billboard charts for almost a year and garnered
platinum certification, cemented by its three solid singles.
Soon the media joined in on the hype, and Death Cab for
Cutie was featured on the cover of Spin magazine and also made an appearance on Saturday Night Live. Their major-label debut
earned them a Grammy nod as well. In 2008, the band released Narrow Stairs, which dropped at the top of the Billboard 200.
They continued to finish out the year on tour while Something About Airplanes – a deluxe version – arrived in
November. In the first part of 2009, Death Cab for Cutie continued touring, taking stages in Australia and Japan. The Open
Door EP was welcomed in the spring, and included songs that were pushed to the side from the Narrow Stairs sessions. Codes
and Keys came out in 2011, followed by an EP of remixes.
