Chvrches frontwoman, Lauren Mayberry met Death Cab for Cuties, Ben Gibbard for the first time just this week during an episode of the podcast, The Talkhouse. Mayberry and Gibbard interviewed each other, talking about music scenes in their hometowns, songwriting, and their co-headlining tour that theyre on now. And last night, Death Cab was joined by Lauren Mayberry on stage at the Volvo Car Stadium in Charleston, South Carolina.
Mayberry performed Death Cabs classic track Brothers on a Hotel Bed with Gibbard and as expected, did an incredible job. Her interpretation of the song felt so organic and natural, the song felt just as much as hers as it was Gibbards. Later during the same show, the bands performance of Soul Meets Body came to an awkward halt as Gibbard rips off his earpiece, knocks over the mic stand and storms off stage. Its hard to say what actually went on, a security breach? A crazed fan? A flying cigarette to the face? A rockstar tantrum? You can decide for yourselves below. Regardless, the band did come back out and finish their set. Catch both bands on tour now, through July.
