Asphalt Meadows is Death Cab for Cutie’s first follow-up since 2018’s Thank You For Today. The album is produced by John Congleton, a Grammy Award winner. Their single, “Roman Candles,” shows shades of alt-rock music and indicates how the band still loves to experiment, even after 25 years.
The band was formed in 1997 and comprised Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr, Zac Rae, and Dave Depper. It was initially Gibbard’s solo project but after its first record deal, it became a complete group. Their debut album, Something About Airplanes, was released in 1998, but their real breakthrough came with their 2003 album, Transatlanticism. A few of its songs were also part of several films and TV series. Their 2005 record, Plans, received Platinum certification and their ninth studio album, Thank You For Today, was also a massive hit.
The band’s music is often categorized as classic indie rock, indie pop and alternative rock. They have released nine studio albums, four Eps, a live, and one demo album. They continue to produce incredible live performances and their upcoming concerts will be a special occasion for all indie-rock fans. If you’re one of them, you can get your tickets right now before they are sold out!
