Death Cab for Cutie Announce North American Tour, Share "Black Sun"
Published Jan 26, 2015Death Cab for Cutie recently unveiled plans for Kintsugi — their final LP with founding member Chris Walla. And while Walla will no longer join the band for live performances, Ben Gibbard and the rest of the crew will be heading out on a North American tour this spring.
Kicking off on April 10 in Meza, AZ, the tour will make its way north of the border for a couple of Canadian dates in May. The band will bring their new live lineup to Toronto's Sony Centre on May 7, followed by a stop at Montreal's Metropolis on May 8. Most of the shows will feature an opening set from Brooklyn indie rockers the Antlers.
Death Cab will cross the Atlantic for a string of European shows in June, before returning to the United States and wrapping up their tour schedule with show at the Hollywood Bowl on July 12.
Kintsugi officially hits shelves on March 31 via Atlantic Records, and the band have now shared the first taste of the new record with a lyric video for "Black Sun." You can see the full list of upcoming tour dates below, and scroll past those to sing along to the new tune.
