“‘Roman Candles’ is about the crippling, existential dread that goes hand in hand with living in a nervous city on a dying planet,” they say. “And that the only way to be in the moment is to let it all go.”

Along with the album announcement, Death Cab For Cutie also will also embark on a U.S. headline tour in the fall.

Presales for the tour begin May 16 at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin May 20 at 10 a.m. local time. Check here for more details, and look below for tour dates.
