    Colin Meloy - the amazing frontman and songwriter for The Decemberists - will return to the road a la carte and launch his first solo tour in five years at Town Hall in New York City on November 1. He will be playing songs from throughout his career and debuting new material on the 10-city run.

    That makes this tour a "can't miss."

    In keeping with tradition, Meloy is recording an EP of cover songs to be sold on the tour. He has paid homage to Morrissey, Shirley Collins and Sam Cooke in the three earlier installments of the Colin Meloy Sings... series.
