In late 2012, the songwriter, moved by his sister’s relationship with her wife, raised money to help legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state (he wrote an op-ed for The Daily Beast about it here). After protests broke out over the law’s anti-gay undertones, the state’s Republican leaders rushed to introduce a new measure to counteract it—a move Gibbard says is “very telling.”“As our nation gets younger and the voting population becomes skewed toward people who grew up with gay, lesbian, trans people being much more visible, these laws that are meant to ‘protect’ what I view as a religious minority in this country will continue to fall,” he says.
“What the state had to lose by sticking to its guns on this piece of legislation was vastly larger than what it stood to gain from it.”“I don’t see any difference between the struggle that the LGBT community is experiencing with laws such as Indiana’s and the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s—though a black man was gunned down by a police officer two days ago in South Carolina, so that is an ongoing struggle in itself,” he continues.
Gibbard says the service is dead on arrival.“If I had been Jay Z, I would have brought out ten artists that were underground or independent and said, ‘These are the people who are struggling to make a living in today’s music industry.
Whereas this competitor streaming site pays this person 15 cents for X amount of streams, that same amount of streams on my site, on Tidal, will pay that artist this much,’” Gibbard says.
“It seems like just yesterday we were in a van eating mustard sandwiches driving to SXSW, but it wasn’t.
The indie-rock romance to rule them all has ended: singer-actress Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard have separated after two years of marriage, a representative for Death Cab confirms.
In 2011, when Death Cab for Cutie released its seventh studio album Codes and Keys, frontman Ben Gibbard was (literally) in a very different place.
She And Him‘s Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab For Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard‘s divorce has been finalised.
The musical couple filed for divorce on December 27, 2011 with the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
A year later, Gibbard was back in Seattle and divorced, making it tempting to interpret the band’s latest effort, Kintsugi (released this month via Atlantic Records) as a breakup record.
The most recognizable markers of pre-“adorkable” era Death Cab are here, with heartfelt meditations on disillusionment and the pains of drifting apart.
