Death Cab For CutieDeath Cab On DVD
Revered indie rock act Death Cab For Cutie is the subject of the documentary "Drive Well, Sleep Carefully: On the Road With Death Cab For Cutie," due this week on DVD via Plexifilm.
"Drive Well" was directed by Justin Mitchell, who embedded himself with Death Cab during its 2004 North American tour. Live performances of 13 tracks, including favorites such as "We Laugh Indoors" and "Company Calls," are featured, as well as an acoustic set in San Francisco, rehearsal and demo footage and deleted scenes.
"It's primarily a tour film, but there's a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff that unmasks us as the dorks we truly are," DCFC frontman Ben Gibbard says.
The group's major-label debut, "Plans," is due Aug. 30 via Atlantic. It's the follow-up to 2003's "Transatlanticism," which has sold more than 323,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
