What started almost 20 years ago in Bellingham, sure continues to grow despite it's challenges. Death Cab For Cutie announced their eighth studio album 'Kintsugi' will hit the shelves of the record store and internet on March 31st, 2015. After 17 years together, it is the last album to be recorded featuring founding member Chris Walla. Walla announced he was leaving the band last year, and has already played his final show with the group.

What exactly is Kintsugi? Let me save you a google - it's is a Japanese art form where cracks in porcelain bowls are repaired and highlighted using precious metals:

“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.”
