The Decemberists

   

"The EXL115W strings meet all of our needs. With D'Addario, there's no reason to go anywhere else."

   



ABOUT THE DECEMBERISTS

Since their earliest recordings more than a decade ago, the Decemberists have always been known for their sense of scope and daring-from "The Tain," an eighteen-and-a-half minute 2004 single based on an Irish myth to their last two ambitious, thematic albums, The Hazards of Love and The King is Dead. This time, though, Meloy explains that they took a different approach: "Let's make sure the songs are good, and eventually the record will present itself." The Decemberists-Meloy, Chris Funk (guitars), Jenny Conlee (keyboards), Nate Query (bass), and John Moen (drums)-had announced that they would be taking a break when their touring cycle finished following the release of 2011's The King is Dead. Meloy wanted to spend time with his family and work on the children's book series that became the acclaimed, best-selling Wildwood trilogy. To be sure, they had reached a new peak in their career: King entered the Billboard album charts at Number One, and the track "Down by the Water" was nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Rock Song" category.
