Death Cab For Cutie Make 'Ellen' Debut With 'Gold Rush' Performance

Death Cab For Cutie released their ninth studio album, Thank You For Today, just over a month ago and on Thursday the Seattle indie rockers made a special stop in L.A. before embarking on a massive fall tour that sees them traversing the country for the rest of the year.
Though the band has been together for over 20 years and has racked up some impressive accolades in that time, including six Grammy nominations, there's one thing Ben Gibbard and company hadn't done: played on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
That changed on Thursday (September 20), when Death Cab For Cutie made their Ellen debut and performed the new album's lead single, "Gold Rush."
Watch the performance below.
Death Cab For Cutie kick off their extensive tour today (September 21). Check out a full list of tour dates below.
