, Staff

Death Cab For Cutie have announced plans for a very special tour of North American this spring. For the one-of-a-kind trek, Death Cab For Cutie will team with members of San Francisco’s celebrated Magik*Magik Orchestra. The tour will stop at the Citi Wang Theatre In Boston on Saturday, April 21. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $39.50 to $59.50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Telecharge. Low will open the show. Minnesota-based veteran indie rockers Low will open the show.

The Magik*Magik Orchestra contributed all of the string arrangements on Death Cab’s latest release Codes and Keys and accompanied the band on their VH1 “Storytellers” special last year. The small orchestra has also previously worked with a variety of rock artists including John Vanderslice, The Walkmen and The Dodos.

Death Cab For Cutie Ben Gibbard tweeted, “Excited to play w/ the Magik*Magik Orchestra this spring! Expect older tunes never played live + recent stuff, all w/ killer arrangements.”

Codes and Keys, the band’s seventh full-length studio effort and first since 2008’s Narrow Stairs, was released last May. It features hit single “You Are a Tourist” and has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Alternative Album category.

Following the show in Boston, the tour will stop at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence, Rhode Island on Monda, April 23. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $37.50 to $65, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the venue’s box office and website.
