Adored Mailing List Recipients,

We’ve added yet another short run of dates to the Popes of Pendarvia World Tour in May and June.  The two previously announced festival performances will bookend a series of headline shows in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Raleigh, and Columbia, MD.  We’ll be joined on these dates by Best Coast.  We’ll also play a show in Bend, OR on May 29th with Rodrigo y Gabriela.  A limited fan presale for all dates is currently underway here.  Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday at 10am ET.  Details on the TOUR page. Our UK/Europe tour continues tonight with a show in Birmingham, UK.  We’re joined by Blind Pilot on these dates.  Very few tickets remain for the shows.

On April 16, we’ll release Live At Bull Moose, a limited edition EP in conjunction with Record Store Day. The seven-track CD—which will be available at all participating independent record stores—was recorded live at our January in-store performance at Bull Moose in Scarborough, Maine, and includes songs from the new album, as well as The Louvin Brothers’ “If I Could Only Win Your Love.”

You’ve heard us mention the 2500+ Polaroids that Autumn de Wilde shot during the making of The King Is Dead.  Now you can see all of them in the Decemberists Create-Your-Own Polaroid Slideshow. Pick your favorites, sort into a custom slideshow, add one of four album tracks as a background song, then share your slideshow on Facebook and Twitter.  We’re featuring some of our favorites on the Facebook page.  Have a look here.

There are new items abound in the Decemberists Shop!  Visit the Shop and browse the latest collection of tees, hoodies, and limited edition silkscreen show posters. The King Is Dead Deluxe Box Edition is still available too.  Visit the Shop HERE.
