The Decemberists are coming to the Uptown in February

The Decemberists are playing the Uptown on February 7 in support of the band's forthcoming record, The King Is Dead. (The album itself comes out on January 18.) They're joined by Gillian Welch, another uniquely-voiced songstress. (We reviewed her show in Omaha with Bright Eyes this summer. Read it here.) Mountain Man -- a woodsy, Bennington, Vermont-based group of three girls -- opens, too.

Here's what the band's press release says:

The King Is Dead marks a deliberate turn towards simplicity after the band's wildly ambitious and widely acclaimed 2009 song-cycle The Hazards of Love. Produced once again by Tucker Martine, the album features Welch on seven tracks and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck on three tracks.

Listen to the band's first single, "Down By the Water," over at the band's website. (You can also watch a video preview of the album, too.)
