Yep, that's pretty much it. In a band newsletter sent out last night discussing the previously reported Always the Bridesmaid vinyl singles series and subsequent tour dates, The Decemberists left their fans with this sneaky little teaser:
"In other news, we've officially closed the book on tracking our next record and mixing starts tomorrow! We're all tremendously pleased with the outcome thus far. It's called 'Hazards of Love.' That's all we'll say now."
You Ain't No Picasso posted six new Decemberists songs a couple months back, including a couple that seem likely to be included on the new record, "Hazards of Love 1 and 2" and "Hazards of Love 3." Good stuff.
And that's all we'll say now as well. Stay tuned...
