Death Cab for Cutie has added more North American stops to the in-progress road trip supporting the group's Grammy-nominated release, "Codes and Keys."

The alt-rockers continue the itinerary with a performance tonight (5/1) in Knoxville, TN, working their way west through a hometown show May 13 in Seattle. This portion of the trek features orchestral group Magik*Magik Orchestra performing onstage alongside DCFC.

Since last check, another 18 gigs have been tacked onto the schedule, beginning with a June 30 show in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. The latest leg includes several festival stops, such as Milwaukee Summerfest July 5, Des Moines' 80/35 Festival July 7 and Cincinnati's Bunbury Music Festival July 15.

Tickets for some of the new dates are available now at the band's website, while other cities go on sale later this week.

"Codes and Keys," Death Cab's seventh studio album, hit retailers last May and debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200. The set, which was produced by the band's guitarist Chris Walla, received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album; Bon Iver took home the trophy for "Bon Iver, Bon Iver."

The 2011 release follows Death Cab's chart-topping 2008 album, "Narrow Stairs," which Walla also produced.
