Thursday, May 7, 2015

Fresh from the release of their eighth studio album Kintsugi, Death Cab For Cutie, have announced Splendour in the Grass sideshows in Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. 

The indie rock legends hailing from Washington last appeared on Australian shores in 2012 when they were touring their Grammy nominated album Codes & Keys. Their upcoming tour will see them travel as a five-piece featuring the core membership of singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard, bassist Nick Harmer, and drummer Jason McGerr augmented by new touring members Dave Depper (Menomena, Fruit Bats, Corin Tucker, Ray Lamontagne) and Zac Rae (My Brightest Diamond, Fiona Apple, Lana Del Rey, Gnarls Barkley), both of whom contribute additional guitars and keyboards. 

After dominating for nearly two decades, Death Cab For Cutie continue to present fans and the music world with material that is compelling and innovative.
