    Death Cab for Cutie, the indie rock giants fronted by Zooey Deschanel's soon-to-be-ex-husband Ben Gibbard, will hit the road on a major North American tour. Youth Lagoon will support the tour beginning April 27 at NYC's Beacon Theatre and continue through the end of the tour. The first leg opener to be announced shortly.

    And the tour is unique because? Well, the band will play intimate venues and historic theaters accompanied on stage by members of San Francisco's celebrated Magik Magik Orchestra. Known for their innovative collaborations with such artists as Mike Patton, John Vanderslice, The Walkmen, and The Dodos, the orchestral group previously teamed with Death Cab for Cutie for their recent installment of VH1 Storytellers as well as doing all of the string arrangements on the band's most current release Codes and Keys.

    Tickets will then go on sale to the general public starting on Jan. 27.
