Death Cab For Cutie will tour North America in 2012.

Death Cab for Cutie has announced 2012 North American tour dates, with Youth Lagoon hopping on to support the latter half of the tour. This tour truly looks like an attempt to do something special with his road time: Death Cab will be joined by the Magik*Magik Orchestra (who did the string arrangements on their latest Grammy-nominated album, Codes and Keys) to play intimate shows in historic theaters, opera houses and churches around the country. They’ll also join Austin City Limits lore in early May.

Presale tickets will be offered to members of the official DCFC fan club on 1/20/12 at 12pm local venue time. Tickets open up to the public a week later on January 27th. Either group will be able to add a tour-exclusive merch bundle to their ticket order. DCFC Enhanced Merch Bundle includes:

1 Premium Seat Ticket in the first 15 rows
1 Limited Edition DCFC Event Poster
1 DCFC Tour Shirt
1 DCFC Union Local #1138 Fan Club Membership or Renewal (1 year, online only)

And finally, Ben’s single now. Just sayin’.
