Boise's Youth Lagoon received another big career boost today with the announcement that the band will open for Death Cab For Cutie on its upcoming orchestral tour this April and May.
Trevor Powers and Logan Hyde will be hitting some pretty impressive venues with Death Cab, including New York’s famed Beacon Theatre, the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, and Austin City Limits Live in Austin, Texas.
An eight-piece orchestra will accompany Death Cab on the tour, giving the band's earnest emo-pop a stringed makeover.
This will put Youth Lagoon in front of its biggest audiences ever, as the band makes the leap from nightclubs to theaters. See the tour dates below.
