Death Cab for Cutie will release their ninth studio album, Thank You For Today, on August 17 via Atlantic Records.

The eight-time grammy nominated band, made up of Ben Gibbard (vocals, guitar, piano), Nick Harmer (bass) and Jason McGerr (drums), will be joined on the record by touring members Dave Depper (Menomena, Fruit Bats, Corin Tucker) and Zac Rae (My Brightest Diamond, Fiona Apple, Lana Del Rey, Gnarls Barkley).

The album was originally teased back in May with the release of a cryptic YouTube video showcasing a short segment of a new track and a picture of the new band lineup and the message ‘August 2018.’

Today, pre-orders for the album as well as the new single and accompanying video for, “Gold Rush,” became available on all platforms.

The band will embark upon a North American tour beginning in August after a short stint in Europe.
