Death Cab for Cutie will release their latest album, ‘Kintsugi,’ in March

Death Cab for Cutie are back with a new album, “Kintsugi,” set to drop on March 31. The album, which is the band’s eighth, will mark the group’s first release without founding guitarist Chris Walla, who left the group last year.

“Considering what we were going through internally, and with what a lot of the lyrics are about, it had a great deal of resonance for us — the idea of figuring out how to repair breaks and make them a thing of beauty,” bass player Nick Harmer explained of the album’s title, which is taken from the Japanese art of mending broken ceramics using precious metals. “Philosophically, spiritually, emotionally, it seems perfect for this group of songs.”

When Walla left Death Cab for Cutie last year, he explained the move and a venture into the unknown, stating “I think I long for the unknown. It might be that simple.”

Death Can for Cutie’s last album was 2011’s “Codes and Keys,”
