With the start of a spring tour just a month away, indie icon Death Cab for Cutie has announced another round of dates for July. The one-month leg will pick up July 5 at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA, and wrap July 18 at Marymoor Amphitheatre in Redmond, WA.

The six-date July run is most notable for the range of all-star indie acts lined up in supporting roles. Throughout the month, opening duties will rotate among Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers, Andrew Bird and Ra Ra Riot. Presale and public on-sales vary for each date; details can be found on Death Cab’s Web site.

Since the initial spring tour announcement, a few additional concert dates have been added to Death Cab’s planned run. The opening has been pushed up to an April 5 concert at Sound Academy in Toronto, ON, plus the addition of an April 22 show at Mount Baker Theatre in Bellingham, WA.

The spring leg has also been extended through a May 7 show at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, FL. The new Florida date concert was added after the Miami-based Langerado Music Festival cancelled its March 6-8 run. Death Cab had been booked as one of the primary acts for the event.

Death Cab is continuing to tour behind its May 2008 studio release, “Narrow Stairs,” the sixth full-length record from the group. A five-track follow-up EP will hit later this month, with a digital release set for March 31 and physical copies first available during live performances on the spring tour.
