Death Cab For Cutie - Australian Tour 2015
Having just released their excellent latest studio album “KINTSUGI” and already announced on the instant sell-out 2015 edition of Splendour in the Grass – Washington indie legends DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE are excited to announce a full run of Australian headline shows including shows in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Wollongong, Canberra and a signature headline performance at the Sydney Opera House.
The last Australian tour was in 2012 when they toured the Grammy nominated “CODES & KEYS” album and so with eight outstanding albums under their belts and “KINTSUGI” proving they are in some of the finest form of their career both live and on record this 2015 tour is both very exciting and long overdue for Australian fans.
This tour will see the band play with the five piece live line-up that has had reviewers overseas raving and features 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 nearly two decades together Death Cab for Cutie are consistently hailed as one of contemporary music’s most compelling, creative, genre defining and era defining collectives and we are very, very pleased to see them back in Australia for these shows.
