The Decemberists Announce Fall Tour Dates

July 28, 2009  |  11:10am
Those clever Portland indie-rock poets The Decemberists have just announced the fall dates for their upcoming tour that they've been calling "A Short Fazed Hovel," but the tour could be described as anything but short. Thus far, they've already promoted and performed their latest narrative-style album, Hazards of Love, at multiple music festivals and sold-out venues, and the autumn season is looking like it will shape up to be equally industrious.

Pre-sale tickets are available here, and more information about the tour can be found at the band's newly-redesigned website. Check out the full fall list of tour dates below:
