The Decemberists are an American folk rock band from Portland, Oregon. Hot off the heels of their latest release, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World (available today), The Decemberists will perform at the Greek Theatre, LA on Saturday, May 2 with special guest Lucius.
What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World is The Decemberists' seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2011's The King Is Dead, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and featured the GRAMMY-nominated song "Down By The Water." Produced by The Decemberists and long-time collaborator Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Neko Case), it's the group's most varied and dynamic work yet. The album's lead single "Make You Better" continues its ascent of the Triple-A radio charts reaching #3 this week.
