Death Cab to release new EP, coming to Marymoor Park with New Pornographers this summer

It’s looking like it is going to be a busy year for everyone’s favorite indie kids from Bellingham, Death Cab For Cute. The band will digitally release an EP containing new material titled “The Open Door” on March 31. The five-song release will include four unreleased tracks from the “Narrow Stairs” sessions and a demo of the “Narrow Stairs” track “Talking Bird” with Ben Gibbard singing while playing a ukulele. The EP will see physical distribution on April 14 and be available on the band’s upcoming spring tour.

Speaking of playing live shows, Death Cab is about to embark on a spring tour. The tour will bring the band to Spokane on April 24 and it will also bring the band back home to Bellingham on April 22. Ra Ra Riot and Cold War Kids are opening both dates and I will be at the Spokane show to fill you in on what it’s like to catch Death Cab in the eastern part of the state.

After the band is through with its spring jaunt the boys have some pretty big summer plans too. Those plans include, yup you guessed it, more touring. Show info after the jump.
