Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


After their last studio album, released in 2018, Death Cab for Cutie make their hard-hitting return to LPs with their 10th album, Asphalt Meadows, produced by GRAMMY Award-winning John Congleton (St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Wallows).

The record arrives as the indie rockers enter their 25th year as a band and leads with the single "Roman Candles." Death Cab for Cutie's co-founder, lead vocalist and guitarist Bejamin Gibbard shared about the song, “The lyrics were cobbled from a couple of different songs dealing with my general sense of anxiety; the feeling that the fabric that weaves a functioning society together was crumbling during the pandemic.”

As the band formed in Washington state in 1997, the group rapidly soared into classic indie rock canon with albums like Transatlantacism, Narrow Stairs, The Open Door and more. Now, the band enters a new era with Asphalt Meadows.

Limited to 1,000 copies, the VMP exclusive edition of Death Cab for Cutie's Asphalt Meadows is pressed on 1LP 180g Opaque Pink and Grey Splatter vinyl. The record is mastered by Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering Studios. It will arrive in a gatefold direct-to-board, foil stamped and numbered jacket along with a printed inner sleeve. The record also comes with a download code for the album.
