Death Cab for Cutie say their shows are 'safe places' in post-election statement to fans

Posted on

Death Cab for Cutie issued a statement on their website and social media accounts Monday calling their shows inclusive “safe place[s]” in a post-election world.

“We feel that there has never been a more important time to reaffirm the following: Death Cab for Cutie shows will always be a safe place for people of all colors, all genders, all sexual orientations and all beliefs,” the statement reads.

The band has been vocal about the election before, contributing a protest song, “Million Dollar Loan,” to the 30 Days, 30 Songs playlist, which debuted anti-Trump songs in the 30 days leading up to the Nov. 8 election. “Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is unworthy of the honor and responsibility of being President of the United States of America, and in no way, shape or form represents what this country truly stands for. He is beneath us,” frontman Ben Gibbard wrote in a statement when the song was released.

Death Cab for Cutie are not the only musicians to respond to Trump’s shocking win. On Monday, Willow Smith released an emotional song titled “November 9” that encourages hope.
