    The Decemberists' frontman/band leader Colin Meloy mentioned something about a "long hiatus" in a recent interview, which sparked lots of chatter on Twitter and amongst fans about the future of the band. But Meloy calmed the speculation to The Associated Press during a quick interview at the Bonnaroo fest over the weekend.

    "Nothing could be farther from the truth," Meloy said Saturday. "With this record I feel we have a whole world in front of us with plenty of options and I'm excited to continue writing music for The Decemberists and performing with The Decemberists."

    And there you have it.

    The Decemberists are one of my favorite bands! So this is good news. The King Is Dead is out now; don't sleep on it.

    Are you a fan of The Decemberists?
