Get ready to see the hottest act of this year for Death Cab for Cutie and Franz Ferdinand set to team up for a co-headlining tour in the United States, starting March 22 in Oregon. Death Cab bassist, Nick Harmer, has revealed that the idea to tour with Franz Ferdinand came after the members of his band began talking about plans to launch a U.S. tour. "We were like 'Why don't we tour with another big band and see how it goes?" he remarked. As for the reason for picking Franz Ferdinand to accompany them, he simply said: "The Franz Ferdinand guys all seem to be very much in line with how we feel about rock 'n' roll." Hmm, really can't wait to see the gig.
