(Los Angeles, CA) Following the release of their highly regarded Epitaph debut LP Skeleton Jar in May 2005, YOUTH GROUP has signed on as sole support for two weeks of the much-anticipated DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE tour between the dates of October 3rd and October 19th.
These dates comprise the core of YOUTH GROUP'S greater North American tour which commences at the CMJ music convention in N.Y.C. on Sept. 14th.
Seemingly a match made in heaven, DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE and YOUTH GROUP are two artists that share an affinity for evocative atmospheres, and melancholic soundscapes. Nor is the upcoming tour their first creative collaboration. DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE guitarist Chris Walla recently headed into the studio to take on mixing duties for a new YOUTH GROUP track and as a sincere YOUTH GROUP fan, he had this to say about Skeleton Jar: "Skeleton Jar is sweet and dear and genuine in a world stolen by cynics. Put simply, Youth Group gets it. If you don't love them your heart is dead."
