13 August 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's the end of an era for Death Cab for Cutie. Founding guitarist Chris Walla announced on Wednesday that he'll be leaving the alternative rock band after 17 years, in a statement released to Seattle-based music blog Slog. His last concert with the group will take place at Victoria, BC's Rifflandia Festival on September 13. You can find the full text of Walla's statement below, and further down a response from his Death Cab bandmates Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer and Jason McGerr: "Short version: I’m leaving Death Cab for Cutie. My last show with the band will be September 13, 2014, at the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, BC. I hope you guys can make it. Longer version: I think I long for the unknown. It might be that simple. I will miss being a quarter of this band, and will support whatever course Death Cab for Cutie chooses from here. I am profoundly grateful to Ben, »

Why You Don't Want to Ask Zooey Deschanel If She Wants Kids

7 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Zooey Deschanel doesn't want kids ... right now.The "New Girl" star graces the cover of the August issue of InStyle, where she opens up about why she hates answering questions about motherhood."When I was married, that was the first thing people wanted to know," she tells the mag, who split with Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard in 2012. "Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don't think so. Nobody asks a guy that. And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, 'Pregnant and Alone!' Stuck in this 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. That's not something that defines me at all.'"Since her very public divorce, the actress has decided to keep her private life ... private. "You have to be careful what you reveal," she explains. "You invite people in and can't kick them out."While the »

Meet Breakout Sundance Star Miles Teller

17 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Opening night films at the Sundance Film Festival are a bit like opening acts: The audience is still spilling into town, and while the theater may be packed, the town is still half-full. Opening night films are generally forgettable crowd pleasers too: Sure, they warm the winter audience up, but at the end of the day, everyone's talking about the films that come on next. Last night, Whiplash – kicking off the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival – was something very different: the rare opening act that may steal some of the bigger headliners' thunder. »

Sundance 2014: Director Lynn Shelton on Keira Knightley, Death Cab for Cutie, and her new film 'Laggies' -- Exclusive Photo

17 January 2014 7:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Lynn Shelton is a Sundance veteran. Her film Humpday debuted at the annual Park City festival in 2009; last year her story about an anxious massage therapist, Touchy Feely with Ellen Page, made a splash in a year with more female directors than ever at the fest. She returns to Sundance this week with a movie that has a similar sensibility as her previous efforts, but with one big difference: “I’ve never directed a film I didn’t write, and this came to me from an outside source,” Shelton tells EW. “It was an interesting process working with a script »

Sundance Scores: Jenny Lewis, Flying Lotus, Nick Cave, Willis Earle Beale & More Tune Up Park City Films

7 January 2014 12:45 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last week we brought you word that Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and Beastie Boy Ad-Rock where bringing their musical skills to a couple of films headed to Sundance by providing a score (Lynn Shelton's "Laggies" and the baseball flick "No No: A Dockumentary," respectively). Well, that's just the tip of the iceberg. As you might suspect, the worlds of indie film and indie music aren't so far apart and there will be a lot of music to be heard in the films headed to Park City next week, so let's dive in... We previously reported it, but here's another reminder: Jenny Lewis alongside her boyfriend Johnathan Rice are providing the tunes for Anne Hathaway's "Song One" about a PhD student who becomes romantically involved with her brother's favorite musician. First look at the film here. Norwegian singer Sondre Lerche and Kato Ådland have teamed for "The Sleepwalker, »

Sundance: Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard Scoring Lynn Shelton's 'Laggies'; Ad-Rock Tunes Up Baseball Doc

3 January 2014 1:24 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A little bit of related Sundance music news rolling in this afternoon. Two well-known modern musicians—one an indie-rocker, the other a now-seminal hip-hop artist—are plying their trades to some new films making their debut in Utah later this January. First up is Death Cab For Cutie frontman and ex-Mr. Zooey Deschanel, Ben Gibbard. The singer/songwriter's first foray into solo film scoring was for the 2006 documentary "Kurt Cobain About A Son," and now he's dipping his toe in the waters once more for Lynn Shelton's "Laggies." Starring Keira Knightley, Sam Rockwell, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ellie Kemper, Jeff Garlin and Mark Webber, "Laggies" is a coming of age story about a 28-year-old woman (Knightley) stuck in permanent adolescence. It'll be interesting to see the arrested development genre coming from a female perspective and to hear what Gibbard does with it.  Following that film we have the doc, "No No: A Dockumentary, »
