Death Cab for Cutie announce US tour that is totally unique, just like you, you little snowflake

Everybody’s a unique snowflake or a leaf or something. At least, that’s what that guy from Fleet Foxes told me in a song about someone telling him that. When I was 17, I totally knew I was totally unique, not like THOSE SHEEPLE who went to high school with me. To prove it, I listened to the most antiauthoritarian band of all time: Death Cab for Cutie. I’ve got no disdain for Death Cab, I mean, somebody had to make us teenage nerds feel like we were special and someone would love us. Besides, they’re about to go on a completely unique tour, the likes of which the world has never seen.

They’re playing a bunch of theaters with an orchestra.

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG. Death Cab, flipping the script on music as a whole! The orchestra accompanying them will consist of members of San Francisco’s Magik*Magik Orchestra. In the past, Magik*Magik have collaborated with folks like John Vanderslice, Mike Patton, The Dodos, The Walkmen, and, hey, Death Cab for Cutie! They played with them on VH1 Storytellers! By the way, VH1 Storytellers, still a show. They also provided the string arrangements for the last Death Cab for Cutie record, Codes and Keys (TMT Review). Finally, we can hear these songs like we’ve already heard them.
