Last Night: Death Cab for Cutie drops by Fallon

on May 18, 2011, 7:42am

J-Fal hasn’t flexed his musical muscle that much of late — aside from a stunning performance by Lauryn Hill during Bob Marley week, the only other noteworthy guests over the last month have come in the form of Dispatch and Paul Simon. Hell, we’ve written more about Leno in the last two weeks.

Fortunately, Death Cab for Cutie are set to kick off their spring tour in Toronto later tonight, which meant they could spend the evening prior in NYC delivering the first TV performance of “You Are a Tourist” from their forthcoming LP, Codes and Keys. For those who missed it, a clip is available for viewing above (via The Audio Perv). Update: The band also dropped a web exclusive performance of “Title Track” from their 2000 album We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes, which you can watch below.

As for that spring trek, after Toronto, the band will hit Chicago, Minneapolis, and parts of Canada before headlining the Sasquatch! Music Festival next weekend. Below, you can find the band’s complete touring itinerary, which also includes two newly announced dates in Chicago and St. Paul for late August. You know, ’cause they sure as hell ain’t playing Lolla.

Codes and Keys hits stores May 31st via Atlantic and you can pre-order the album via Amazon.com.

P.S. Fallon hosts The Head and the Heart on Wednesday and Fleet Foxes on Friday, so his musical mojo appears in tact.
