Death Cab for Cutie Announces New York Show

For those hoping for new Death Cab for Cutie in the new year, the odds just moved slightly in your favor once again.

The Ben Gibbard-led outfit on Tuesday announced their first show of 2014, slated for May 23 at the Constellation Brands – Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center (CMAC) in Canandaigua, N.Y. Joining the band will be The Head and the Heart.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday at noon, while a special pre-sale begins Thursday at 10 a.m.

The news comes as the band has been dropping hints about a new record. As we previously reported, the band confirmed in October that they were indeed back in the studio.

Death Cab's seventh studio set, Codes and Keys, was released in May 2011. Last year marked 10 years since the release of their critically celebrated Transatlanticism.
