Death Cab for Cutie announce forthcoming Bandcamp Friday exclusive album ‘Live at the Showbox’

It will be available for 24 hours starting this Friday, May 7

Death Cab for Cutie have announced a forthcoming album, Live at the Showbox, which will be available for 24 hours on May 7th as a Bandcamp Friday exclusive.

Live at the Showbox was, as the title suggests, recorded at Seattle’s Showbox from February 24th – 26th, 2020, during a three-night run of performances. The shows supported the “Save the Showbox” campaign, which aimed to score a landmark status for the legendary theater.

The expansive set saw Death Cab performing tracks spanning everything from their sophomore 2000 album to 2018’s Thank You For Today. A portion of the proceeds are set to benefit the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) before receiving an official release later in the year.

“Like so many other artists, we expected to play a lot of shows in 2020,” Death Cab for Cutie explain. “To gear up for the year ahead, we decided to warm up by playing an intimate, three-night stand at a venue that’s near and dear to our hearts – the Showbox in Seattle. Well, 2020 didn’t quite turn out as we had planned – but happily those three magical nights last February did, and we’re glad to say that we had them recorded.”

As of Friday, you can purchase Live at the Showbox at Death Cab’s Bandcamp page. Check out the tracklist for the album below.
