Pretty Girls Take a Death Cab to Canada

Published: 2004-09-30
This fall two of indie rock's most beloved bands will set out on a co-headlining tour of the continent. Seattle's Pretty Girls Make Graves and Washington's Death Cab For Cutie have an total of 20 dates scheduled together, with just one Canadian city on their list. The tour kicks off on October 19th in Boston, with the final date falling in Vancouver on November 12th.

With a line-up change, Pretty Girls Make Graves are adjusting to their new keyboard player named Leona. The five-piece is still promoting their sophomore album 'The New Romance', which was released in 2003 through Matador records. The band's first album was called 'Good Health' which was released in the spring of 2002.

It's been a busy year for Death Cab For Cutie who have seen a rise in their popularity with exposure coming from mentions on shows like the OC and via extensive touring. Currently Death Cab is out supporting their 2003 album 'Transatlanticism', playing dates with Pearl Jam on the 'Vote For Change Tour'. After the four-piece finishes up their dates with PGMG, they will keep on trucking, continuing their non-stop tour with pop-punk band Blink 182.

In addition to pulling vocal/guitar duties in Death Cab For Cutie, Ben Gibbard also has a side project called The Postal Service. The band, which also features Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel and Figurine fame, released their debut album 'Give Up' in early 2003. Postal Service song 'Such Great Heights' recently made an appearance in the film 'Garden State' - no word if Death Cab will perform any covers during their upcoming shows.

November 12 Vancouver, BC - Commodore Ballroom
