About Death Cab for Cutie
When the writing of Asphalt Meadows began in the early part of the pandemic, Death Cab for Cutie wasn't sure how to make a record. Singer/songwriter Ben Gibbard, bassist Nick Harmer, drummer Jason McGerr, guitarist/keyboardist Dave Depper, and keyboardist/guitarist Zac Rae lived in four different cities. Being in the studio together wasn't an option. Though Gibbard started writing songs at the end of their last tour, he felt like he was hitting a wall after being trapped in his home studio for months. So he hatched a plan to shake things up. "A work week is Monday through Friday and there are five members of the band," Gibbard explains. "So on Monday, someone put together a piece of music and shared it. And then the next person took it, with the order decided randomly. On your day, you had complete editorial control." At the end of each week, they finished a rough song mix. Sometimes, songs were transformed entirely, with a key change or altogether different tempo. "After we started, we had a lot of success," Gibbard says. While not all of the songs on Asphalt Meadows came from these sessions, over half of them did. Songs Gibbard presented as demos also went through the process, allowing everyone to figure their parts out before going into the studio with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Explosions in the Sky). Harmer calls the experience of writing this way incredibly inspiring. "Having exactly one day to work on each track allowed me to not overthink things," he says. "I had to come up with something compelling and get it completed or the whole process would break down." "I believe everybody started finding ideas and performances that might not have happened if we'd been in the same room writing," McGerr adds. The first track released off the album, "Roman Candles," was inspired by a drum part from the '70s Krautrock act Faust and Gibbard's desire to write something for the record that was short, loud, and thrashy. "The lyrics were cobbled from a couple of different songs dealing with my general sense of existential dread and anxiety, the feeling that the fabric that weaves a functioning society together was crumbling during the pandemic," he says. "Here to Forever" was built on the idea of looking at the past without idealized nostalgia and evolves into a soul-searching song about wanting spiritual clarity. "Foxglove Through the Clearcut" finds Gibbard delivering spoken word verses and an ever-growing drum bridge by McGerr that pushes the music forward into a chorus of beautiful harmonies. Friendship is the inspiration for "Wheat Like Waves." Spending time with Torquil Campbell of Stars at Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada while listening to Prefab Sprout prompted Gibbard to write about an adult male friendship that has spanned years. Rae recalls working collaboratively with McGerr on "Fragments From the Decade." "We had gone into a studio and played drums and keys duets for a few hours," Rae says. After editing and sharing, what came back from Gibbard in the next 24 hours was very nearly the final song. "Not everything was that fast or easy, but a lot of what made it on the record certainly was." "Rand McNally" is a poignant track about building a legacy. "This is my life's work," Gibbard says. "When members leave bands, they're often seminal members. That fans continue to support them is a testament to how important the music is to them. I wanted to write something to and for everyone who has been in this band, who helped make it what it is, to say I'm not going to let the light fade." Depper was the second person to pick the track up and immediately knew it was special. "I felt drawn to playing acoustic piano on this track, something I'd normally never do because Zac is 4000X the piano player that I am. But given the space and solitude that this process allowed, I confidently contributed a piano track and melodic line that I'm really proud of." Depper felt “don’t let the light fade” had a hymnal quality and decided to use it as a reprise. “I didn't want the song to end yet,” Depper says. “So I was inspired to create a coda to the song based on that line, with layers of harmonies joining in with each refrain.” The final track, "I'll Never Give Up on You," stands out in its round-robin writing style for Rae. "The song came to me as a groovy, single chord idea, and I added some fairly strange, almost jazzy piano voicings over it. I don't know that we would have settled on that if we had been all together in the room." After 25 years as a band, going about the writing and recording process unconventionally pushed Death Cab for Cutie creatively in new and unexpected directions.

Death Cab is absolutely gorgeous to listen to, and live they sound even better. Ben’s voice is so smooth and you can tell everything they make fits their own personality perfectly. The new stuff they released absolutely rocks, and together with their old stuff really makes for a discography that will blow any audience away. From tender moments to slamming rock tracks: it was an evening for the books 🙌🏻🎸

The band was fantastic!!! Asphalt meadows live really goes to show that Death Can still has it, Mr. Gibbard was hilarious, and the encore was amazing. Kept the energy despite having no opener and playing on a monday The sloppy drunk fans were not fantastic, though. 5 stars for the band... Wish the venue would've handled a few of the more belligerent drunks as they got physically agressive.

I really enjoyed the show. It was my first time seeing these guys live. Maybe I liked it so much because it was Red Rocks, maybe it's just because the music was fantastic. The lighting during the show looked great, they sounded phenomenal, it far exceeded any expectations I had going in. I can't wait to see DCfC again.

Band was great but venue wasn’t the best. Won’t knock the band tho. They also complained about the venue and to be fair it wasn’t built yet when they signed on for this gig so you can’t blain them. They said they would never play there again after this show. Great live show they out in tho!

Total crowd pleaser. They played the hits and even got Jenny back on for a postal service song. Never thought I’d have a chance to see that. It was great. The venue probably isn’t great for the band, they probably didn’t feel the love so much but it was there!

Great show. The band was tight. They covered a lot of their big songs and the new album. They sounded awesome. Forest Hills Stadium is really cool to see a show at when the weather cooperates. Lots of food and drink options (not cheap but big selection). Small but spacious.

I feel like death cab is a band meant for a smaller venue. Yes they sold a lot of tickets but I feel as if they should’ve gone for the pageant or places like that. It was a good concert, definitely not one of my favorites this year though.

I saw them perform at summerfest and it was a bit more personal. This felt rushed but was an okay spread of their music but idk. The stage crew did not help with the timing of all this. Unfortunate. See you again in a few months.

They played well and the sound was good, the venue is nice but the seats were pointless as everyone stood up as soon as they started playing. One of my favorite bands for sure but not in my top 3 shows of the year overall.
