Ben Gibbard announces solo album, Former Lives – NJNews

I figured it would only be a matter of time before Death Cab For Cutie’s frontman Ben Gibbard would get around to releasing a solo album. He’s done plenty of solo acoustic and piano appearances throughout his career and serves as the songwriter for the band. It was just a matter of time before he either wanted to make something completely different in style or wrote something so personal that it wasn’t meant for the band to release. Since The Postal Service was the first of those options, Former Lives will likely be the latter. After his recent divorce from wifey Zooey Deschanel, everyone expected some heartbroken jams from Gibbard. I would be willing to guess that his solo release will touch on those themes. Former Lives will be released on October 16th. A solo tour will follow, which I’ve had the pleasure of catching before from Gibbard and it was amazing. Very exciting news.
