Death Cab For Cutie Expands Schedule

With a brand new album to support, there’s no reason why Death Cab For Cutie shouldn’t be playing as many shows as possible. And that’s exactly what the indie rock act is going to do. New dates added this week include stops in Raleigh, Cincinnati, Austin and San Diego.

The latest leg of gigs is scheduled in September, ahead of its three-night residency in Seattle, just outside of the band’s hometown of Bellingham, Wash. Twin Shadow, Best Coast, Unlikely Friends and Cataldo appear on select dates on the run.

Kintsugi, marking the band’s eighth studio album, was released March 31 on Atlantic Records. The LP debuted at No. 8 on the Nielsen SoundScan albums chart and came in at No. 1 on the Current Alternative Chart.

Rolling Stone calls the LP Death Cab’s survival record, writing, “Gibbard’s signature way of sounding affected by life’s disappointments without letting them wreck him comes in handy here. On the downtempo ‘Black Sun,’ he sings about finding hope; on the New Wave-y ‘Everything’s A Ceiling,’ he’s still longing for someone who’s moved on to a new relationship, but it comes across as more resigned than desperate.”

The magazine adds, “Death Cab have coped with their losses collectively, and emerged with a heart-wrenchingly honest record.”
