Death Cab For Cutie Announce Spring Tour | The Audio Perv
18 Jan
2012

Atlantic recording group Death Cab for Cutie has announced details of a major North American tour following a string of dates in Australia and South East Asia. The dates begin April 10th at Denver’s Ellie Caulkins Opera House and then culminate with a May 13th homecoming concert at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre (see dates below). Youth Lagoon will support Death Cab beginning April 27th at NYC’s Beacon Theatre and continue through the end of the tour. First leg opener to be announced shortly.

The one-of-a-kind spring trek of intimate venues and historic theaters will see DCFC accompanied on stage by members of San Francisco’s celebrated Magik*Magik Orchestra. Known for their innovative collaborations with such artists as Mike Patton, John Vanderslice, The Walkmen, and The Dodos, the orchestral group previously teamed with Death Cab for Cutie for their recent installment ofVH1 Storytellers as well as doing all of the string arrangements on the band’s most current release CODES AND KEYS.

Presale tickets for all dates will be available to members of the band’s official fan club, DCFC Union Local #1138, beginning Friday, January 20th. All remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public starting on January 27th. For further details and as-yet-unannounced tour information, visit www.deathcabforcutie.com.

A new single, “Underneath the Sycamore,” will herald the upcoming tour, with an amazing companion video directed by Walter Robot, who did the band’s famed “Grapevine Fires” video. The piece, which premiered on www.wired.com can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=txndHN7-1DE. The track is among the many highlights of DCFC’s critically acclaimed album, “CODES AND KEYS” which has been nominated in the “Best Alternative Music Album” category at this year’s Grammy Awards. “You Are A Tourist,” the album’s first single, proved a multi-format radio smash upon its release last year, reaching #1 at both Triple A and Modern Rock outlets nationwide – DCFC’s first-ever #1 at the latter format.

“CODES AND KEYS” entered the Billboard 200 at #3 upon its May 2011 release. In addition to its popular success, the album has also received critical praise from a wide array of national publications, including Spin, Rolling Stone, Blackbook, Time Out New York,Interview, Filter, the New York Times, and Entertainment Weekly, which declared the album to be “a reminder to the rest of the pretty-rock community that loveliness is worthless if there’s no heart behind it, and Death Cab’s beats stronger than most.”

Death Cab for Cutie’s recent live performance at the world-famous Brooklyn Museum can be seen in an upcoming installment of the popular PBS series, Live From The Artists’ Den. The band’s full-length episode – which is streaming at www.hulu.com/live-from-the-artists-den – will begin airing on PBS stations nationwide beginning February 17th.
