Ben Gibbard is reliving 2003 one album at a time. First, the Postal Service united for Coachella (and an ongoing tour), playing songs from their only full-length, 2003's Give Up. And now Death Cab for Cutie will be playing all of their widely beloved 2003 LP Transatlanticism at the 2013 installment of Seattle's Bumbershoot festival.

The three-day fête will begin Saturday, August 31 at Seattle Center park and wraps on Monday, September 2. Other headliners include Kendrick Lamar (don't expect Hub City Threat though), recent SPIN cover stars Tegan & Sara, fun., MGMT, Bassnectar and, um, Heart, who were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Among the other legacy acts slated to play are Gary Numan, the Breeders, the Zombies, Eric Burdon, Redd Kross, Superchunk, and Bob Mould. Additional highlights include Joey Bada$$, Icona Pop, Matt & Kim, Tamaryn, Alt-J, Deerhunter, and Baroness, who recently announced the addition of Trans Am drummer Sebastian Thompson.
