Death Cab for Cutie Announce Rocktober Tour

(Atlantic Records) Death Cab for Cutie has revealed details of a string of headlining dates beginning in early October. The shows support the Seattle-based band's acclaimed new album, "Narrow Stairs." Released this past May, the collection made a stunning debut atop the Billboard 200, marking Death Cab's first-ever #1 record.

DCFC will perform in their hometown of Seattle for the first time in nearly two years at the annual Bumbershoot Festival. They close out the mainstage of the festival on Monday, September 1st. Indie rock legends Superchunk have agreed to make an increasingly rare appearance and join the bill.

Death Cab will then kick off their fall tour on October 3rd at Boston's Agganis Arena, with dates thus far announced through an October 13th show at St. Louis' Fox Theatre. Among the tour's highlights is an October 6th date at New York City's legendary Radio City Music Hall.
