Death Cab For Cutie announce 'The Blue EP'

Following on the release of their heavily-praised ninth studio album 'Thank You For Today' last year, Death Cab For Cutie have now returned to announce the details behind a new EP, arriving in the coming months.

The new five-track release 'The Blue EP' will feature the new tracks 'Kids in ‘99' and 'Blue Bloods', produced by Peter Katis, as well as 'To The Ground' and 'Before The Bombs, produced by Rich Costey during the recording sessions for their previous LP. The fifth track on the project, 'Man in Blue', was self-produced by the band.

The new lead single 'Kids in ‘99' was written in tribute to three children who lost their lives in the 1999 Bellingham Olympic Pipeline explosion in Seattle, Washington. Frontman Ben Gibbard reflects on the inspiration behind this track, “The Olympic Pipeline explosion in 1999 was a tragedy that really affected me while we were living in Bellingham. After all these years I felt it was worthy of its own folk song.”
