    Death Cab for Cutie will release their eighth studio album and first in four years. The album is titled KINTSUGI and it's out on March 31.

    It is also the band's first album since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla.

    Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them. As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an object's history.

    Love that concept, in terms of the art and the album.

    "Considering what we were going through internally, and with what a lot of the lyrics are about, it had a great deal of resonance for us – the idea of figuring out how to repair breaks and make them a thing of beauty," says bassist Nick Harmer, who suggested the name to singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard and drummer Jason McGerr. "Philosophically, spiritually, emotionally, it seems perfect for this group of songs."

    Track Listing:

    1. NO ROOM IN FRAME
    2. BLACK SUN
    3. THE GHOSTS OF BEVERLY DRIVE
    4. LITTLE WANDERER
    5. YOU'VE HAUNTED ME ALL MY LIFE
    6. HOLD NO GUNS
    7. EVERYTHING'S A CEILING
    8. GOOD HELP (IS SO HARD TO FIND)
    9. EL DORADO
    10. INGENUE
    11. BINARY SEA
