Death Cab For Cutie have a lot to keep up with lately; so we'll start from the beginning...

First thing's first, their seventh LP Codes and Keys comes out on May 31st via Atlantic Records. In support of the LP, they'll hit the road for a string of club dates dubbed, the Underplay Tour.

This coming Friday, the indie rock-mainstays will spend their second night of tour at the way sold-out Metro. As per much of these club dates, The Lonely Forest will open.

Following the Underplay Tour, is a larger set of North American dates with the likes of Frightened Rabbit. Initially lacking a Chicago date, they've just announced that they'll make a stop at the UIC Pavilion (who recently hosted Arcade Fire / The National) on August 25th. Tickets for the show go on sale Saturday, May 21st at 10AM CST.
