Death Cab for Cutie and the Postal Service Are Skipping Canada on Their Co-Headlining Tour

The bands will play 'Transatlanticism' and 'Get Up' in full

Attention all (non-Canadian) sad millennials: Death Cab for Cutie and the Postal Service have announced a 2023 co-headlining tour celebrating the 20th anniversaries of Transatlanticism and Give Up

The tour's gonna be a marathon for Ben Gibbard, who'll obviously be performing both sets, with the bands playing both albums in their entirety. Unfortunately, the tour is sticking to the US only, so Canadian fans will need to make some travel arrangements if they're hoping to attend. The tour kicks off in September in Maine and heads West for a home turf show in Seattle on Transatlanticism's actual anniversary (that's October 7), before closing out at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

"I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003," Gibbard said in a press release. "The Postal Service record came out, Transatlanticism came out. These two records will be on my tombstone, and I'm totally fine with that. I've never had a more creatively inspired year."

The Postal Service hasn't toured in a decade — the last time they hit the road was for Get Up's 10th anniversary. The Postal Service's lineup for the new tour will be Gibbard, Jimmy Taborello and Jenny Lewis. DCFC's lineup will be Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae and Jason McGerr.

Ticket presales start next Wednesday (December 14) at 10 a.m. local time and will continue the following day. General public on-sale is happening Friday, December 16. You can find more details here and watch a trailer for the tour (plus all the dates) below.
