Chris Walla, guitarist of Death Cab For Cutie, has made the decision to leave the band. His last performance with the group will be on September 13th in Victoria, BC at the Rifflandia Festival. You can see a statement from him below.
Short version: I’m leaving Death Cab for Cutie. My last show with the band will be September 13, 2014, at the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, BC. I hope you guys can make it. Longer version: I think I long for the unknown. It might be that simple. I will miss being a quarter of this band, and will support whatever course Death Cab for Cutie chooses from here. I am profoundly grateful to Ben, Nick, and Jason, for the experiences that define my adult life. Truly grateful, beyond words. Thank you.
