Indie-rock royalty Death Cab For Cutie have confirmed that they’re working on their eighth studio album.

As SPIN reports, frontman Ben Gibbard posted photos on the band’s official Instagram account revealing studio sessions in progress. Guitarist Chris Walla will once again produce the album that’s expected to drop in stores in 2014, which would be the follow-up to 2011’s Codes and Keys. If fans had any doubt that Death Cab For Cutie were working on new material, the photo below will ease their fears.

Gibbard has been quite the busy man as of late. The singer released his debut solo record, Former Lives, in 2012, and reunited with his Postal Service bandmates in 2013 for a bunch of music festival dates.

Death Cab For Cutie strolled down memory lane and reissued all their albums released by Seattle, Wash. indie label Barsuk on vinyl earlier this year. Death Cab’s beloved 2003 record, Transatlanticism, will be re-released as a special 10th anniversary edition on October 29.
