The Decemberists teasing something, playing Prospect Park with M. Ward
The Decemberists are definitely up to something. They posted a new press picture (above) and three vague teasers that read "I'm allied to the landslide," "I'm allied to the winter," and "Don't you get clever" (below). New album being announced soon?
UPDATE: They added a fourth teaser and wrote "TOMORROW," so stay tuned for more info on Wednesday (1/17).
UPDATE 2 (1/17): Album and full tour announced, lead single out now!
They also haven't revealed a full tour yet but they've begun announcing 2018 shows, including Boston Calling and the second edition of their own Traveler's Rest festival, which happens August 4 & 5 in Missoula, MT and has The Decemberists headlining each night with a unique set (lineup TBA, early bird tickets on sale).
The Decemberists will be in NYC for a BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival show on June 13 in Prospect Park with M. Ward opening. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/19) at 10 AM with an artist presale starting Wednesday (1/17) at noon. All known dates are listed below (probably more TBA).
M. Ward also announced some headlining dates, including a Jersey City show happening April 13 at White Eagle Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday at 10 AM too.
Last year, The Decemberists teamed with Olivia Chaney for a collaborative album and tour as Offa Rex.
