After a gruelling touring schedule since the release of their seventh album Codes and Keys, Death Cab For Cutie finally set their sights on Australia for live shows in February 2012. The band last toured Australia in 2009, selling shows out well in advance, promoting their Grammy award nominated sixth album Narrow Stairs.

But the best news for all you fans girls out there is that Ben Gibbard has recently split from his wife, actress and singer Zooey Deschanel, and will be visiting Australia as a very eligible bachelor. We know we know it’s probably a bit tasteless to be talking about this so soon but as we said before, “one man’s folly is another man’s wife”. Or in this case husband.

Tickets are on sale now.
