Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is set to release his debut solo record in fall of 2012. Former Lives will be released on October 15th in the UK/Europe (City Slang) and October 16th in North America (Barsuk).

The 12 tracks were written over the course of eight years but didn’t find their fully realized form until the songwriter moved from his native Seattle down to Los Angeles. The album was recorded at longtime pal Aaron Espinoza’s (Earlimart) studio, The Ship.

Limited touring will follow the release of the album. We'll keep you posted on details, as well as information on a new Death Cab For Cutie record on the horizon.
