This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Death Cab For Cutie have finally revealed their new song, and it is mesmerizing like looking directly into an eclipse.
Not that we've ever done that…
Black Sun is the band's first single off their upcoming album Kintsugi, due out March 31, for which they'll be touring throughout 2015.
