Benjamin Gibbard

Death Cab For Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard has just promised to promote his first solo LP ‘Former Lives’ via a European tour, as features just one relevant Britain-based date at London’s Union Chapel on 3 Dec.

‘Former Lives’, which Gibbard describes as “a side story, not a new chapter” in his professional life, is released via City Slang on 12 Nov. Taken from it, this is ‘Teardrop Windows’ his ode to Seattle’s most sidelined skyscraper, the Smith Tower.
