Death Cab For Cutie release their seventh studio album, the Alan Moulder (MBV / JAMC / NIN) produced 'Codes And Keys' through Atlantic on 30th May, following the single release of 'You Are A Tourist' last week. It's their first full-length since 2008's 'Narrow Stairs', an album that received two Grammy nods but no wins. Perhaps now is their time.
Bassist Nick Harmer says of the album stream: "Hello to everyone in the UK! I am beyond excited that NME.com has decided to share our new album, 'Codes And Keys, with you'. I really hope you enjoy what we've made and can find some time to listen and fall into the album. We'll be coming through on tour very soon and hopefully we'll see you at the shows too. Thanks for taking the time and supporting our band, much love from across the pond, Nick"
If you're lucky enough to be going to the Eagles & Prince-featuring Hop Farm festival, they'll be there. Other UK dates are lined up too - check the website for more.
