Death Cab For Cutie have announced plans for a UK and European tour in 2023. See the full list of gigs below, tickets are available here.

Fans who pre-order the band’s forthcoming album Asphalt Meadows, which is out on 16 September via Atlantic, can gain access to a pre-sale at 9am next Wednesday (7 September) before tickets go on general sale at 9am next Friday (9 September).

Three songs from Asphalt Meadows have been released so far. The first single, Roman Candles, was shared in May this year. “Roman Candles is about the crippling, existential dread that goes hand in hand with living in a nervous city on a dying planet,” the band explained in a statement. “And that the only way to be in the moment is to let it all go.”

Frontman Benjamin Gibbard added, “The lyrics were cobbled from a couple of different songs dealing with my general sense of anxiety; the feeling that the fabric that weaves a functioning society together was crumbling during the pandemic.”

Here To Forever followed in July. “It’s a song both about our impermanence and the anxiety of these times,” Gibbard explained of the track. “It’s also about wanting to believe in something bigger even when it feels like nothing is out there.”

And last month the band released Foxglove Through The Clearcut. “Foxglove is by far the most personal song on the record,” Gibbard said of the song in a statement. “While I was writing it, I thought I was merely the narrator. But the longer I sat with it, I realized I was both the protagonist AND the narrator.”
