Exciting Wellington act Mermaidens will be the opening act for the Wellington date and Lontalius will play support for the Auckland show.
Death Cab For Cutie’s eighth studio album KINTSUGI was released in March 2015, reaching #1 on Billboard’s top rock albums chart and garnering a Grammy nomination. The band has been touring to support the release ever since, with headline dates across the US and Europe and festival appearances including Glastonbury and Splendour in the Grass.
“Death Cab For Cutie put their new five piece lineup through its paces, delivering a perfectly balanced set of hits and more obscure jams from their catalog” – Rolling Stone Australia on DCFC’s Splendour in the Grass set.
“Death Cab for Cutie are still rock stars, and among the last big, inventive guitar bands we have left.” – Los Angeles Times on DCFC’s July Hollywood Bowl concert.
After extensive touring across the globe to support the release of KINTSUGI, New Zealand fans can be assured of seeing one of alternative music’s great bands at their heady best.
