Death Cab for Cutie may have previously announced plans to embark on a massive springtime North American tour, but now it looks like the group is ready to extend it into the summer months. On Friday (Jan. 18), the Washington state-founded band announced the latest addition to their 2019 tour itinerary. Set to take place during the months of June, July, and August, the 16-stop tour will find the group performing in cities such as Portland, New Haven, Queens, Detroit, Toronto, Colorado (Morrison), Louisville, and St. Louis.
The summertime tour dates will begin on June 7 at Stage AE in Pittsburgh and conclude two months later on Aug. 11 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Jenny Lewis, MITSKI, Car Seat Headrest, and LaLa LaLa will open on selected dates. Pre-sale tickets for the newly announced dates will go on sale beginning Tuesday, Jan. 22. General ticket sales will then go on sale a few days later on Friday, Jan. 25.
The new summer-centric tour dates come months after the band announced plans to embark on a springtime tour. That trek will commence on March 29 at the Joint in Las Vegas and conclude with a two-night stint on April 15 and 16 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Like the springtime tour, the summertime excursion will be in support of Death Cab for Cutie’s recent record, Thank You for Today. The record, the band’s ninth studio effort, peaked at the number 13 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was met with mixed reviews from critics and fans alike.
The record produced several hit singles including “Gold Rush,” “Autumn Love,” and “I Dreamt We Spoke Again.”
Thank You for Today is the follow-up quintet’s 2015 Grammy-nominated album, Kintsugi.
As if the newly added tour dates weren’t enough, the five-piece is set to perform on NPR’s Live from Here with Chris Thile show on Saturday, Jan. 19, and NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday, Jan. 21.
