the decemberists prepare their newest cautionary tale

New Decemberists albums are always a wonderful and exciting thing. While their discography is large enough to be able to listen to their music and never get sick of them, whenever that new album is about to drop a sense of overwhelming joy sweeps over me because I know that for the next few months I will have something amazing to listen to. There is no need to worry that the music won't meet your expectations or that the new album will sound just like the last. The Decemberists have been known for their ability to produce music that is not only consistently good, but new and exciting, while maintaining that uniquely Decemberists feel.

This time around, the band has recorded what is being dubbed a rock opera. The Hazards of Love, which hits stores on March 24th, is going to tell a story from start to finish, all the while giving us some new tunes to listen to. To help tell this story, the band has enlisted the help of some of the most talented female singer/songwriters out there today. Lavender Diamond's Becky Stark and My Brightest Diamond's Shara Warden can both be heard on the album, lending their voices to the female characters in the plot. If this hasn't gotten you excited yet I know just what will. Firstly, if you head over to the band's myspace page you can hear the first two songs from the album and might I say they are wonderful. And secondly, below you will find the Decemberists' upcoming tour dates where you will be able to hear this album being performed in its entirety. Take a look. -Greg Lozoff
