Really interested to see the influence (if any) of Matt Skiba now full-time in the band - whether it be lyrically or musically.

Are you kidding me? I'm excited and all for a new TSL song, but pre-order clothing/hoodie options for a single coming out? Wow.

I remember seeing them for the first time in July 2000. Going to see them next Friday in Chicago. Crazy to see them 15 years later and still going strong.

Crime is definitely still there but what this Alderman is doing is not setting the right tone for attracting other businesses to the area.

Riot Fest is too big for Union Park and too small for Grant...

As a 31-year old on this site, my heart is skipping a beat reading this news. 90's alternative rock is my groove and will be my go-to decade of music as I become an old crusty man.

So essentially Death Cab has progressively gotten worse?

If I had to rank studio albums:
1) The Photo Album
2) Transatlanticism
3) We Have the Facts We're Voting Yes

5) Plans
6)...

As an elder on this site who still remembers when Transatlanticism came out my sophomore year of college - I've been a long time Death Cab fan.

I've enjoyed the ride of albums they've put out...

Also - any service that relies on another service like GMail (who was bought by a competitor to a Google product) is at risk to being gone anytime Google wants.

Tried that.

It totally messes up your GMail inbox though - hated it and turned it off.

Sure, but very limited in scope of supported devices and availability of updates, restrictions by App Store, Google Play, etc.

Sorry - it's funded by Lightbank, which includes Brad Keywell and Eric Lekofsky of Groupon fame.

It's from the same owners/founders as Groupon - so my hunch is not very positive.
