Said Death Cab for Cutie in a statement, regarding the album’s release:

“The day that for so long felt so far away is finally here. Our new album is out, and we could not be more relieved and thankful. We made it. We found our way through a very dark time and have arrived with a record that is a reflection of everything we’ve done and everything still to come. We hope you love Asphalt Meadows as much as we do – it belongs to you now. We can’t wait to see you at all the shows ahead. As always, thank you for listening.”
