    Death Cab for Cutie revealed details for their much-anticipated summer headline tour. The dates celebrate the upcoming release of the acclaimed band's eagerly awaited new album, Codes and Keys, which arrives in stores and all online retailers on May 31st.

    Death Cab for Cutie will hit the road beginning July 27th at Columbus, Ohio's LC Outdoor Amphitheater, followed by major shows across the US and Canada. Pre-sale tickets to most of the newly announced dates will be available starting on Friday, April 29th at www.dcfcunion.com; all remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public the following weekend, May 6th through 8th . All shows will feature acclaimed band Frightened Rabbit as support.

    The new tour dates follow Death Cab for Cutie's imminent North American tour of intimate venues, all of which are long sold out.

    Long known for their ingenious and imaginative videos, Death Cab for Cutie recently made history with the companion clip for their extraordinary new single, "You Are a Tourist." Directed by award-winning filmmaker Tim Nackashi (TV on the Radio, OK Go, Elvis Costello, Radiohead), and conceptualized by frequent collaborator Aaron Stewart-Ahn, "You Are a Tourist" is the first-ever live, scripted, single-take music video to be broadcast as it is filmed.
