Adored Mailing List Recipients,
As we mentioned last month, We All Raise Our Voices to the Air (Live Songs 04.11-08.11), a twenty song live double-album and triple-vinyl set, will be available in stores and online March 13th! You can pre-order the album NOW at thedecemberists.com. We’re also selling the Carson Ellis-illustrated We All Raise Our Voices to the Air exclusive tee, which can be bundled with the CD or LP:
If you pre-order the album from thedecemberists.com, you will be entered to win the original vinyl test pressings of the album, signed and otherwise lovingly decorated by Colin, Nate, John, Jenny, and Chris. Ten runners-up will get their pre-ordered CD or vinyl set signed by the band. The contest runs through March 13th and winners will be picked and notified by email on March 16th.
The album, which is our first-ever live record, features many songs from The King Is Dead, as well as many classic favorites. Tracks come from shows at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Stubb’s in Austin, Marymoor Amphitheatre in Seattle, the tour-closing pair of shows at McMenamins Edgefield Amphitheatre in Portland, and others. The album features Sara Watkins on fiddle, guitar, and vocals and several tracks include an appearance by PABST [Portland Auxiliary Brass (Saxophone Trumpet)].
