The Decemberists

Tuesday, July 19 • 7:30 p.m.


Over the course of a career, any band worth paying attention to will pursue a sound, a direction, until it triggers a different idea and they’re chasing some other distant dream.

To frontman Colin Meloy, in some ways The King is Dead represents his own musical journey coming full circle. “Over the last eleven years or so, I feel like I’ve been mining mostly English traditions for influence,” he says. “I guess I’ve kind of come back to a lot of the more American music that got me going in the first place.”
