Chvrches, the fine Scottish craftsmen of electropop, are teaming up with renowned indie rock band Death Cab for Cutie for a series of dates in June. The news of these co-headlining dates come as tour expansions for both bands, who have been touring relentlessly behind their 2015 LPs. Death Cab for Cutie released their eighth studio LP Kintsugi on Atlantic Records nearly twelve months ago; Chvrches landed their sophomore effort, Every Eye Open, via Glassnote Records back in September.
The bands will unite for five East Coast dates in June, beginning with a concert at Cleveland, OH's Jacob's Pavilion at Nautica on June 7th. The convergent leg (June 7th-16th) will take Chvrches and Death Cab for Cutie to Canandaigua, NY's Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center; St. Augustine, FL's St. Augustine Amphitheatre; Charleston, SC's Volvo Cars Stadium; and Charlotte, NC's Uptown Amphitheatre at NC Music Factory.
The bands' current world tours each see them joining with other artists for co-headlining concerts. The Chvrches roster includes dates with Paramore, Shura, the Twilight Sad, Alvvays, and Wolf Alice. Death Cab for Cutie's tour sees them playing alongside Metric, The Helio Sequence, and Pure Bathing Culture.
Both Death Cab for Cutie and Chvrches are playing this year's Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.
Chvrches recently released a music video for their "Clear Blue" single off Every Eye Open that features singer Lauren Mayberry sporting knight's armor on her shoulders. She and Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves were recently featured in a piece about women in the music industry for Paper Magazine.
