Chris walla ben gibbard dating
For years, Walla had spent what downtime he did have from Death Cab lending his production services to other artists; he’s done extensive work with Quin and her sister on The Con and Sainthood, as well as overseeing albums from the likes of The Decemberists, The Thermals and Now, Now.He put out a solo record, Field Manual, in 2008, and started his own label, Trans, in 2010.Their last record, meanwhile, Codes and Keys, seemed to be about doors opening, literally and figuratively; there were ruminations on the meaning of home and on new beginnings.The streak remains unbroken with Kintsugi, their first full-length in four years.Joined by Nick Harmer, Nathan Good and Chris Walla, the band was officially formed in 1997 at Western Washing University, Washington.The name of the band was taken from the title of a song by British band Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah.Ben Gibbard and Chris Walla are often referred to as “the PETA guys”.
Within a matter of months, he’d walked away from the band entirely, playing his final show in Canada in September of last year and dissolving, in the process, one of the most formidable indie rock partnerships of recent times.
If there's one thing that being around bands for as long as I have has taught me, it's that what tends to make them work is that the members have similar personalities, and you'll often see that bands have that one guy who's brilliant, but conflicted about his involvement in the band. For us, Chris was very much that guy."Gibbard formed Death Cab with Walla when they met as students in the Washington college town of Bellingham in the late nineties, with the former writing the songs and the latter recording them.
That was a dynamic that never really changed; once they broke through with Transatlanticism in 2003, the way Walla's nuanced, intelligent work behind the desk complemented Gibbard's viscerally emotive lyrics formed the crux of what made Death Cab one of indie rock's key players.
