Death Cab Start The Meter For Fall Tour

Just days after the release of their brand new album, Plans, Death Cab For Cutie will embark on an extensive North American tour. Kicking off with two shows at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, the 28-date tour will hit major markets all across the continent before wrapping up with a hometown show at the Paramount Theater in Seattle. Along the way, Ben Gibbard and company will make their national TV debut with a spot on Late Night With Conan O'Brien on Tuesday, September 27.

Plans is the band's very first major label offering, but fear not Death Cab fans, they didn't run out and nab some hit-making producer to turn them into superstars. No, just as he has on their past four releases, Death Cab guitarist Chris Walla was behind the board for Plans, and he must have done something right because the first single, "Soul Meets Body", was streamed over 200,000 times in the first week alone via the band's MySpace page.
