Colin Meloy on possibly signing to a Major
Prefix: What’s coming up for you guys?
The Decemberists: Well, I think we’re just going to continue on the course. This record that comes out in March is going to be our last record on Kill Rock Stars, I mean at least contractually. We don’t know what we’re exactly going to do. We’re talking to some labels. We’ll see.
Prefix: Are you necessarily opposed to signing with a major?
The Decemberists: No, as long as we’re able to do everything on our terms. There seems to be a lot of bands of our ilk that are looking at majors or looking to move up to majors. It seems the environment is such you can really tailor your own deal. We won’t make any rash decisions I don’t think.
