Death Cab For Cutie Go On An Extensive Fall Tour
As I mentioned in my previous article on The Shins, theyre among the few bands in the indie genre that everyone, including non-hipsters, know about. Death Cab for Cutie is another. Since 1998, the Washington group has released seven albums, with each one succeeding in greater popularity than the last. Their breakout album Transatlanticism became so buzzed about, the infamous record company Atlantic signed them to start off a fruitful career. No longer in obscurity, the Ben Gibbard led group began headlining festivals and tours, while also finding the time to create a sister group called The Postal Service. After their long awaited album, 2011s Codes and Keys, Death Cab have been on an endless tour schedule. In fact, the "I Will Follow You Into The dark" hit-makers are still on their summer tour with supporting act Frightened Rabbit. They have now added more tour dates as well, finally completing their already abundant schedule. Here are the fall dates:
Death Cab For Cutie 2011 Tour Dates:
Explosions in the Sky and Telekinesis are an amazing set of groups to have accompany them, even if Explosions is only playing one show with Death Cab. Nonetheless, Im expecting an amazing performance at their Langerado appearance, so expect to see my full coverage of the bands set, and the entire festival, come October. If you are curious about ticket information, check out their official website. Tickets for all dates except the Key Arena show will be available to members of the bands fan club, beginning Wednesday, August 3rd. All the remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public starting on Friday, August 5th. That is not a big gap in dates, but if you plan on attending this slew of shows, then you should probably buy a ticket quickly, as they will probably sell out immediately after the virtual doors open.
This tour is quite an extensive one when you think about it because the Gibbard lead group is just coming off of an already long summer session. Its not unlike them though to push the very limits of their power as a band; so I look forward to seeing how this tour pans out.
