Death Cab For Cutie are recording a new album in the studio which will be the band’s last with guitarist and producer Chris Walla
HARMER: To his credit, he spoke up very early on in the process. It wasn’t like we were a week away from finishing the record or something. It was actually kind of exciting in that moment to stop and rethink our process. I’m really grateful to him for that.

It really made me stop and take stock of my own playing in a different way, which was cool.

The Acacia Strain were playing in town so I figured I'd make my way to New Brookland Tavern for the show. It was my first time at the venue even Ive lived here since May. The local metal scene here is way better than Atlanta, as far as friends showing up to support the bands.
