A squabble broke out during Death Cab For Cutie's set at a Charleston, S.C., concert on June 15 at the same time that frontman Ben Gibbard's equipment failed. Despite reports that Ben stormed off stage mid-song, DCFC's Nick Harmer explained how the group experienced technical difficulties.
"It's kind of a non-story really," Harmer tells Billboard at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. "It got spun as we left the stage mid-set. It was the last 20 seconds of the last song and all of Ben's equipment failed at the exact kind of unrelated moment there was a giant fight in front of us."
