The Decemberists have scheduled even more dates behind their chart-topping sixth album, The King Is Dead. Having already mapped out shows from now until mid-June, Colin Meloy and co. will resume their travels beginning July 19th in Jacksonville, OR. They’ll then slowly make their way east, hitting Boise, ID, Chicago, IL, and Cleveland, OH along the way, before playing a series of shows up and down the U.S. eastern seaboard. After that, The Decemeberists will head back west, playing Cincinnati, OH and Indianapolis, IN in early August, and then shows in Texas and Arizona during the middle part of the month. They’ll cap it all off with two dates in California, concluding August 13th with a headlining appearance at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music Festival.
Sub Pop-signed risers The Head and the Heart will open a portion of the newest dates and tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning April 22nd. You can find all of the band’s confirmed tour dates below.
