Death Cab for Cutie's eighth studio album, Kintsugi, is set to be released on March 31st, as has been revealed in this Rolling Stone interview on January 12th. This is the first Death Cab studio album since 2011's Codes and Keys, which polarized listeners with its new approach to the renowned indie band's sound. Kintsugi is a Japanese art of fixing broken pottery so that all the cracks are visible, treating the cracks as part of the object's history and displaying them rather than hiding them. Death Cab for Cutie resonated with this philosophy as it went hand in hand with what the band is going through at the moment – founding member, guitarist and producer Chris Walla played his final show with the band last month, though he fully participated in the making of Kintsugi. Although he'd produced each Death Cab record prior, the new album is the first one not to be produced by Walla, but rather Rich Costey. Chris's decision was an amicable one and he has cited a "desire for something new" as one of his main reasons for leaving the band.
