Death Cab for Cutie is now set to work the road through the summer behind their forthcoming album, "Codes and Keys."

The latest confirmed leg of dates for the band focuses on the North American summer amphitheater circuit, opening June 17 in Los Angeles and wrapping up Aug. 23 in the Denver area. Frightened Rabbit will open the newly announced shows.

Some fans will get a much more intimate dose of Ben Gibbard, Chris Walla and the rest of Death Cab for Cutie during a previously announced North American club tour that opens May 18 in Toronto and runs through June 9.
