As Death Cab for Cutie gears up for its next album release, the band has shared its latest single and accompanying music video for the song, “Here to Forever.”

The Grammy-nominated band’s forthcoming album, Asphalt Meadows, is set to drop on September 16. (Pre-order HERE.)

The new music video was written and directed by filmmaker Lance Bangs, who has worked with Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Kanye West in the past. It shows Death Cab’s frontman, Ben Gibbard, talking with two inept pressing plant employees at a vinyl factory, played humorously by comedians Natalie Palamides and Courtney Pauroso.

The new single follows the band’s release of “Roman Candles,” which is also off the forthcoming LP.

“It’s a song both about our impermanence and the anxiety of these times,” says Gibbard of the new single. “It’s also about wanting to believe in something bigger even when it feels like nothing is out there.” 

The Bellingham, Washington-born band’s ninth studio album, Thank You for Today, was released in 2018.

Death Cab also has a slew of tour dates set for this fall, which fans can check out below, along with the tracklist for Asphalt Meadows, which was produced by Grammy Award-winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Wallows).
