Death Cab for Cutie took to social media yesterday (October 10) to let fans know that they’re hard at work recording their eighth album.

According to Rolling Stone, the band is holed up in a Seattle recording studio, with DCFC guitarist Chris Walla once again playing the role of producer. Along with producing records for Death Cab, he’s also produced two albums for Tegan and Sara, 2007′s The Con and 2009′s Sainthood, and others.

Photos posted by the band on Instagram, with the hashtag #inthestudio, give fans a look at the setup inside the studio, from multicolored pedals to “paintbrushes,” otherwise known as guitars. According to one dispatch, the band is going to be in the studio “for a bit.”

As of right now, there is no official release date for the band’s follow-up to 2011′s Codes and Keys.

The album news comes just a few weeks after Death Cab announced they would be reissuing their album, Transatlanticism, in honor of its tenth anniversary. The band recently performed the record in its entirety during their recent set at the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle.

Ben Gibbard also just finished touring behind The Postal Service’s Give Up, which also just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Now, however, it’s in with the new, out with the old.
