Those Portland-based indie rock heartthrobs (er, whatever) Death
Cab for Cutie, have recently completed the recording portion of their third as-yet-untitled LP, due out on Barsuk Records this fall. This is their third release in as many years, and follows 2000's delicious We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes. In other Deathcab news, the band is lined up to play Spain's Benicassim Festival the first weekend of August. The roster includes veteran alternative artists the Flaming Lips, PJ Harvey, Mogwai, Mercury Rev, Belle and
Sebastian, and a reunited Big Star. For more info about the new release, or further tour dates, go to www.barsuk.com.
