Death Cab For Cutie plot tour with Frightened Rabbit
With a show at the Paradise Rock Club already sold out for June 5 as part of a brief and intimate club tour, Death Cab For Cutie have revealed plans for a quick return to the Hub. With help from Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit, the Seattle-based rockers will play the more expansive Bank of America Pavilion in Boston on Monday, August 1. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $35 and $40.
Death Cab For Cutie will be touring in support of their forthcoming release, Codes and Keys. The album, the band’s seventh full-length studio effort and first since 2008′s Narrow Stairs, will hit stores on May 31. In 2009, the band released The Open Door EP, which earned them their third consecutive Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Album. Also on May 31, Death Cab For Cutie will released a concert DVD, Live At The Mt. Baker Theatre. The film is comprised of footage from the band’s homecoming shows in Bellingham, Washington along with interviews with band members. Fans can pre-order both items in a variety of packages through the band’s official website.
The band recently made history with the companion video for their Codes and Keys‘ lead single, “You Are A Tourist”. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Tim Nackashi 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. Check it out below.
Frightened Rabbit, who signed with Atlantic Records at the end of last year, are reportedly writing material for their followup to 2010′s The Winter of Mixed Drinks. The as-yet-untitled collection is scheduled for a release next year. Frontman Scott Hutchison was most recently in the area this past February, opening for Josh Ritter at the House of Blues with a solo acoustic set.
