Death Cab's Ben Gibbard To Release Solo Album, Former Lives


Death Cab For Cutie and Postal Service frontman Ben Gibbard, apparently now going by Benjamin, is finally setting to release a solo LP later this year. Much like Jack White, the man's worked with a number of bands and collaborators over the years but it's in this late date in 2012 that he feels its time for him to try it out alone. The album, fittingly titled Former Lives, is a collection of 12 previously unreleased tracks written throughout his 15+ year career and will be out on October 16th. We don't have any more information beyond that. We'll update this space when we do.
