Death Cab For Cutie have announced they will be returning to studio to work on new material very soon – or so it seems given the photo posted on the band's Instagram yesterday, with the caption "Paintbrushes. #inthestudio #deathcab."

Since it's already been two years since their last full-length (Codes and Keys, 2011), the row of guitars photographed by the band got us pretty excited. Billboard recently reported that "a source confirms […] that Ben Gibbard and co. are indeed plowing ahead with a new studio album."

2013 saw the band releasing The Barsuk Years box set and the deluxe edition of 2003's Transatlanticism. [via Exclaim]
