Death Cab For Cutie will embark on a major North American tour after they wrap things up in Australia and South East Asia, and they’ll get support from Youth Lagoon for the latter part of the tour. Pretty good news, but that’s not all.

During this unique tour, the band will be joined on stage by members of San Francisco’s Magik*Magik Orchestra. They’ve worked with Death Cab in the past, providing string arrangements for the band during the VH1 Storytellers episode and also taking care of string arrangements on the band’s most recent album Codes and Keys.

Tickets go on sale for members of the band’s official fan club on January 20th and the lowly general public will be able to purchase tix on January 27th. Check out the dates below.
