We’ve got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that our friend Tucker Martine’s studio, Flora, was robbed last month. The burglars made off with about $70,000 worth of guitars, microphones, and various pieces of gear, much of it irreplaceable. The studio was still a work in progress when the robbery occurred; Tucker had just bought the location, had moved all his stuff over from the old Flora, and was in the process of finishing the build-out of what was to be Flora’s fifth and hopefully final residence. You can imagine what kind of hit that would be, both financially and emotionally. Tucker and his family are heartbroken, trying to move on and finish the studio, all the while dealing with an insurance company that has been difficult in the aftermath of the robbery. As you likely know, The Decemberists' relationship with Tucker and Flora goes way back; he co-produced The Crane Wife with Chris Walla in 2006. We went on to make three more records with Tucker, using whichever iteration of Flora was assembled at the time: Flora was Tucker’s home basement; it was a barn in Happy Valley, OR, where he’d moved most of his outboard gear for one recording session; it was, later, a well-appointed studio in North Portland. We did one-off recordings, demos, and EPs at Flora with Tucker. I recorded two audiobooks, the second and third Wildwood books, at Flora. Most of my vocal takes that are currently out there in the world on songs and records were recorded on the microphones that were stolen from Flora a month ago. So that’s the bad news. The good news is this: We’re determined to help Tucker get back on his feet, reclaim or replace the stolen gear, and finish out this latest and greatest iteration of Flora Recording and Playback. We’ve decided to reach out to some friends and organize a benefit concert. In what may be our one and only show in 2019, The Decemberists are performing at the Crystal Ballroom on June 3rd with Blind Pilot and a few more as-yet unannounced guests. All proceeds from this concert will go to a fund to help defray the costs of the theft at Flora. If you’d like to support further, there’s also a Gofundme campaign underway. Any amount helps! We’d love it if you came out and showed support for Tucker, his family, and his studio. Yours, Colin Meloy The Decemberists

If you came out to one of our shows last year, $1 from each ticket was set aside for charitable contributions. With your help, together we raised over $80,000 supporting organizations doing important work related to autism (The Autistic Self Advocacy Network), social change (Social Justice Fund NW), water restoration (Columbia Riverkeeper and Willamette Riverkeeper), educational services (Bodecker Foundation), and adolescent support and opportunities (Self Enhancement, Inc.). You can find out more about each organization, their work and lend your support by clicking on the links to their pages above. Photo: Jelmer de Haas // Utrecht, NL

Here we are, in the final days of the YOUR GIRL/YOUR GHOST tour, the release of our 8th record, 'I’ll Be Your Girl,' a bare glimmer in the fogged rear-view mirror of time. Perhaps other bands would be content to rest on the laurels of another successful record released, another romp about the globe put to bed — BUT NOT THE DECEMBERISTS. No, folks, we have one last thing we’d like to impart to you before we go into our deserved siesta: We are announcing the 'Traveling On EP'! This little bugger is a sharp twenty-one minutes of songs that were recorded during the 'I’ll Be Your Girl' sessions but never quite found a home on the album those sessions produced. What’s the tracklisting, you ask? Look no further: 1. Down On The Knuckle 2. I Will Not Say Your Name 3. Tripping Along (Full Band Version) 4. Midlist Author 5. Traveling On This EP will be out on compact disc, 10” vinyl and, as is the mode, digital bits via your preferred streaming service. However, if you order it now via the Decemberists shop, you can opt to receive a bespoke t-shirt as well. Vinyl copies will include a coupon for a digital download. PLUS: if you order the EP through our web shop, you’ll INSTANTLY have access to digital files of two songs — "Traveling On" and "Tripping Along (Full Band Version)." 10” vinyl & CD released everywhere on December 14, except UK/EU, released December 21.
