Their sharing new track ‘Roman Candles’ today too.

Four years on since the release of ‘Thank You For Today’, Death Cab For Cutie have announced that their tenth studio album ‘Asphalt Meadows’ will be out on 16th September.

Sharing first single ‘Roman Candles’ today, the band say, “‘Roman Candles’ is about the crippling, existential dread that goes hand in hand with living in a nervous city on a dying planet. And that the only way to be in the moment is to let it all go.”

Ben Gibbard adds, “The lyrics were cobbled from a couple of different songs dealing with my general sense of anxiety; the feeling that the fabric that weaves a functioning society together was crumbling during the pandemic.”

Check out ‘Roman Candles’ below.
