After having sold out Oakland, CA’s Fox Theater and two nights at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, Death Cab for Cutie has announced additional tour dates on their upcoming North American trek. The band will perform a third night at the Beacon Theatre on Sunday, April 29 as well as a second night at Oakland’s Fox Theater on Wednesday, May 9. All tour dates are now on sale, with April 16’s Chicago Theatre show going on sale this Saturday, February 4 (see dates below).
The one-of-a-kind spring trek of intimate venues and historic theaters will see DCFC accompanied on stage by members of San Franciscoâ€™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 of VH1 Storytellers as well as doing all of the string arrangements on the bandâ€™s most current release “CODES AND KEYS.” Support acts include Low on the tour’s first leg (April 10-April 25) with Youth Lagoon joining the second leg (April 27-May 13).
A new single, â€œUnderneath the Sycamore,â€ will herald the upcoming tour, with an amazing companion video directed by Walter Robot, who did the bandâ€™s famed â€œGrapevine Firesâ€ video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=txndHN7-1DE. The track is among the many highlights of DCFCâ€™s critically acclaimed album, â€œCODES AND KEYSâ€ which has been nominated in the â€œBest Alternative Music Albumâ€ category at this yearâ€™s Grammy Awards. â€œYou Are A Tourist,â€ the albumâ€™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 â€“ DCFCâ€™s first-ever #1 at the latter format.
