According to a new Spin article, Death Cab For Cutie is ready to plan their next album for 2011. Frontman Ben Gibbard commented on the album which will be their seventh:

It's not a guitar-based record,We've been into vintage keyboards and playing with that palette. We're not adding guitars because people will be expecting them…I'm so proud of this album that at this point I don't care if people don't like it. We're all moving into a period in our lives where family is very important, So living off in the woods for a month away from family isn't something we want to do. On this record I've written a couple songs in our downtime between studios and we start recording that brand new song on the first day of the next session, which is something we've never really had the opportunity to do before.

The band will support the Foo Fighters next year at one of their Miilton Keynes Bowl shows in July.
