    The Decemberists, who have released my favorite album in 2011 in the form of the epic, rootsy The King Is Dead, have announced a second leg of U.S. tour dates for the Spring, which will kick off April 16th in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and cover the Midwest and South before reaching Atlanta, Georgia on May 2nd.

    The 14-date run will also include the band's first-ever appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 1st, and a rescheduled performance in Royal Oak, Michigan on April 22nd. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning February 11th. I am thinking of flying out for one of these dates, since I heart the band.

    The Decemberists are currently in the midst of the sold-out first leg of their North American tour on the heels of The King is Dead, which debuted at #1 on the charts.
