This is a Fare You'll Want to Pay

Geoff Trainor

Death Cab For Cutie are planning a follow-up to their breakthrough album, Transatlanticism, this fall. Plans will see Death Cab's departure from their previous label, Barsuk Records and mark their major-label debut on Atlantic.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, it was reported that Death Cab spent the last month in a Massachusetts farm house, finishing tracks for the new album. Ben Gibbard told Rolling Stone,

"We are virtually in the middle of nowhere. One of the only spots, there was this huge Halloween store. So we blew $300 on Knights of the Round Table costumes for everybody. There's a stable here and we were hoping to take some pictures with the horses. That's how bored we've become".

While the rest of the band is off saving damsels in distress, Chris Walla, guitarist and producer is working on tracks. Speaking of his joint resposibilities, Walla had this to say,

"I think they both feed one another. Rock shows are like primary colors, big and bold, and then you can get away from that and come in and put things under the microscope."

The group is on their way to completing Plans, which was named after one of the singer's favourite jokes; "How do you make God laugh? Make a plan."

No in-jokes, no sarcasm, no self-referential comments, nothing but the story.. ever since I've threatened to burn down your house.. you've been ..so... distant.

:P - hadn't heard about this - The O.C. kids are gonna party out like it's 2004.

I was tired today. I'll try harder next time to be as inaccurate as possible.

ah, see it was the lack of sarcastic O.C. reference (see above) that had me worried.

Hmm, I wouldn't know any OC references as I've only seen two full episodes. The Spider-Man one, and the one about the crystal egg.
