Founding member Chris Walla has left the Seattle emo rockers after 17 years. What does the future hold for the fate of the band?
After a whopping 17 years at the forefront of iconic alternative rock band Death Cab For Cutie, lead guitarist and producer Chris Walla has announced his departure from the group. His exit comes after a decision to focus his creative energies towards other avenues. Walla formed the group alongside frontman Ben Gibbard and bassist Nick Harmer, who are now the only original members holding the fort. Together they produced seven albums, six EP’s and toured the world multiple times. Their blend of fragile alternative rock paved the way for what is now commonly known as ‘emo’, winning millions of fans worldwide through their melancholy songs that were often composed of lush instrumentation and unorthodox instruments.

But with Walla clearly tiring of the band’s direction, where will Gibbard and Harmer go now? Despite Gibbard, who also fronts the cult indie-electro band The Postal Service with Jimmy Tamborello, acting as the group’s main songwriter, Walla’s contribution to the band cannot be overlooked. He has played an integral role in producing and engineering each of Death Cab’s albums as well as lending his production skills to records by Tegan & Sara, The Decemberists and Hot Hot Heat. With Walla absent, Death Cab will have to seek outside help for future efforts. But the group are currently sitting on a fully completed album that has yet to see release- produced in part by Walla, and which will also see the departing guitarist touring to support the release. To ease the band in to an existence without Walla’s guidance, Death Cab employed co-producer Rich Costey for outside input.

Returning synth-pop duo poke fun at themselves
Hilarious banter abounds from the returning Postal Service as they poked gentle fun at themselves in a Funny Or Die video that pondered what auditions for vocalist Ben Gibbard’s role in the band would have been like after the pair went on hiatus as other band Death Cab For A Cutie grew.
The video was directed by The Best Show On WFMU radio host Tom Scharpling and saw a whole host of stars step in an attempt to take on the role of singer for the dreamily atmospheric synth pop group. Cameos by Duff McKagan, Moby, Aimee Mann, Tom DeLonge, "Weird" Al Yankovic, and Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster all came and went during the video, which according to SPIN, lost a little of its zip at nine minutes long.
All of this is added promotion for the pair’s return after nine years away since playing live, with it being a full decade since their critically acclaimed US platinum album Give Up. The group never released an another album following that, though its legend has grown and grown in indie circles, to the extent where some might say Owl City shamelessly ripped off the pair’s soft breezy sound when they emerged onto the scene in 2010. The group have a glut of live shows scheduled for this year, including an American tour and an appearance at Coachella weekend next month.
