Death Cab for Cutie is the brainchild of front-man Ben Gibbard. Originally started as a solo venture, Gibbard expanded the band to include four members total after a successful demo tape release in 1997. Since then, the band has released eight albums and have been nominated for multiple Grammy awards.
The band’s success at a critically acclaimed level has propelled them into being one of the most popular indie acts of recent memory. From initially starting as an engineering student’s personal side-gig, Death Cab for Cutie has risen the ranks of the music industry and developed into a world-renowned group. Death Cab will bring their alternative-indie vibes to Riot Fest on Friday, September 2nd in what will surely be a must-see performance.
