Death Cab for Cutie Agency Booking Profile
Death Cab for Cutie’s rise from small-time solo project to Grammy-nominated rock band is one of indie rock’s greatest success stories. Launched in the bayside college town of Bellingham, Washington, the group was originally a side project for singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard. Since that day the band has undergone many incarnations and released a total of seven studio albums, most recently 2011’s Codes and Keys. Amongst the highlights for the band include gracing the cover of Spin magazine and hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live. Transatlanticism in 2003 gained the band commercial success. After signing with Atlantic Records, Death Cab For Cutie released Plans in 2005, which contained the singles “Soul Meets Body” and “Crooked Teeth”. The 2008 record Narrow Stairs served as a stylistic departure for the group. The band released their seventh album, Codes and Keys, in 2011. The first single from the latest album, “You Are A Tourist,” has drawn The Stone Roses comparisons. In 2011, the group streamed a live performance of the music video for “You Are A Tourist.” The video was accomplished in one take, using multiple cameras, and no edits or re-takes. The innovative and artistic production employed dancers, actors, and projected images. The band released the video for “Home is a Fire” in May of that year, featuring street artist Shepard Fairey plastering lyrics from the song around Los Angeles. Ben Gibbard told Shave Magazine that the album was written in 4 different studios in 4 different sittings “to keep the creative progress moving forward” and prevent stagnation. Codes and Keys was also nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 54th Grammy Awards. In 2012, the band toured across the globe, starting in Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia. In April and May, the band toured in the United States with members of the Magik*Magik Orchestra, who collaborated on tracks on Codes and Keys. After headlining the inaugural Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati, the band played several summer festivals in Europe. Contact SME today to book Death Cab for Cutie!
