Kintsugi is the first Death Cab album not produced by Walla, instead opting for Rich Costey behind the board. Still, Walla contributed his usual parts to the record, though his separation from the group is official now that it’s out.

The release of the album was preceded by a handful of singles, including lead single “Black Sun.”

In an interview with, the band discussed the transition to a Walla-less Death Cab.
