Death Cab for Cutie have debuted the lyric video for their single “Gold Rush” – the first single off their forthcoming ninth studio album “Thank You for Today,” out everywhere August 17th. In a nod to the song’s message – a requiem for an ever disappearing urban skyline – the video features Ben Gibbard flipping through the track’s lyrics in front of a new construction site. The visual was shot by Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer.
Says Gibbard of the inspiration for the track: “I’ve had this realization only recently that so many of my memories are tied to my geography. And when that geography changes, it’s as if you’re not only coming to terms with the passage of time, but it’s as if you’re losing those people and that time in your life all over again. Cities are in constant flux, and I’m not claiming victimhood in this, but the speed at which Seattle is changing, and people of color and creative communities are being pushed out, is alarming.”
Death Cab for Cutie will celebrate their new album with a much anticipated fall tour. The dates – which see the band playing intimate venues and theatres across North America – begin September 24th at Eugene, OR’s Hult Center for the Performing Arts and travel through mid-October. Due to popular demand, second shows have already been added in Philadelphia and Boston. Last week, the band announced a UK/European tour, set to kick off at the top of next year.
