The Queen of Hearts – Out Now

Adored Mailing List Recipients,

OFFA REX has arrived!

We Decemberists are thrilled to announce that our side-project with the inimitable Olivia Chaney in which we play an unsuspecting 60s psych-folk band with a terrible secret IS OUT TODAY! It’s called The Queen of Hearts and it’s available anywhere you, adored listener, interface with music-listening apparatus — i.e. iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Blorf, Quad, Jips, or, heaven forfend, YOUR LOCAL BRICK AND MORTAR RECORD SHOP.

Git on it!

We’re very proud of it. The record was made in Portland, OR, last year, and was helmed by Tucker Martine & Colin Meloy on production duties. Olivia did the lion’s share of arrangement (with some contributions from Mr. Meloy and Jenny Conlee) on these eleven trad & cover tunes. Offa Rex is heading out and performing a few live dates in select cities:
