If you didn’t think it was possible for Death Cab For Cutie’s latest single “Black Sun” to get any better, then we’ve got some great news.
Gibbard and crew just released a killer music video for “Black Sun”. The single comes from their upcoming and very highly anticipated album Kintsugi, which comes out March 31st and is available for pre-order right now via iTunes. The cinematic video about the life of a Hollywood stuntman compared to a cold Hollywood Starlet plays well into the theme of the song. In the words of good ol’ Ben, “How could something so fair be so cruel“.
Slow moving, but visually appealing, this music video is worth your full, undivided attention for 5 minutes.
Although their May 7th show at the Sony Centre here in the city is already sold out, the band just updated their tour schedule with a couple new cities added, if you feel like making the trek. The tour dates are listed down below.
And if that’s still not enough for you, check out Ben Gibbard’s acoustic rendition of “Black Sun” on SiriusXM.
