Adored Mailing List Recipients,
While the live-action Decemberists are still hibernating, their animated counterparts are poised to debut on The Simpsons tomorrow night (Sunday) at 8pm ET on FOX (and live on into eternity through the power of syndication). Their appearance isn’t a mere cameo – the band also wrote and recorded original music for the episode. And Colin penned his line himself which makes it that much more Decemberist-ier.
The episode, entitled “The Day The Earth Stood Cool,” also features the great Patton Oswalt, Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen. Be sure to tune in via your preferred visual entertainment medium.
As you know, the Decemberists Shop is your destination for top quality Decemberists goods of all shapes, sizes, colors and sounds. And we are pleased to share with you that a Holiday Sale is underway. Mosey on over to the shop to find 20% off all apparel, all posters, odd & ends, and select music.
