Last night the boys stopped by NYC’s Ed Sullivan Theater to give us a live taste of new single, “Stay Young, Go Dancing”. The performance comes right on the heels of the release of a brand new video for the Codes and Keys standout track. Check out the performance below:

Coming via Spinner, the new music video for Death Cab’s Codes and Keys standout, “Stay Young, Go Dancing”. I must say I enjoyed this one much more than the “You Are a Tourist” video, mainly because it maintains the charming simplicity of the actual song, and ends up being pretty darn heartwarming. The video follows an older couple back in time, Benjamin Button style, as they dance through the decades of their romance.

Watch it here, and don’t forget to share your thoughts! Did you like it? Hate it? Debate away.

Also don’t forget to check back in after the guys start back up their tour on Friday, i’ll be providing full coverage, as usual.

Last night on Carson Daly’s late night talk show (yeah, he still has his own show), he featured a couple videos from Death Cab’s recent show at LA’s Greek Theater. If you can manage to sit through Carson’s shameless product placement, check out the video to see the guys perform killer versions of “You Are A Tourist” and “New Year”. Enjoy.

Aaaaaand we’re back. Sorry folks for the sparsity of posts lately, but truth be told with the boys on a month long break from tour (which starts up again on Sept. 30th in Cincinnati) there hasn’t been much of anything to report.  However leave it to DCFC guitar geek extraordinaire, Chris Walla, to get things jump-started again with these very cool videos. It’s no secret that Death Cab and fellow Seattle natives, Telekinesis, are band BFFs (the group enlisted Chris to produce their awesome new album, 12 Desperate Straight Lines, which is out now). So it’s no surprise that when Telekinesis recently performed a couple cuts from the album for SPIN Magazine, they asked Chris to join them on guitar.

Watch the performance below, and also download a track from the album. Telekinesis will also be supporting Death Cab on their upcoming leg of the Codes and Keys tour.

...more like Langerdon't! (sorry, I had to.)

Langerado, the Florida-based music festival was scheduled to return on October 8th and 9th after a two-year hiatus with a lineup that included Death Cab for Cutie, The Trey Anastasio Band and Arctic Monkeys. Back in 2009, the last year of the festival, poor ticket sales and a less than impressive lineup caused the event to go on indefinite hiatus. Now, despite the attempted comeback, the higher-ups at Langerado have decided to cancel the festival once again.

Although no official reason has yet been given for the cancelation, one can only assume that the ticket sales were not what the festival planners had been hoping for, so they decided to cut their losses. It’s too bad for Florida-based fans of DCFC, I’m sure it would have been a fantastic performance.
