    The Decemberists have announced the first leg of their 2011 North American Tour in support of The King is Dead, their forthcoming Capitol Records album which will be released January 18. The 16-city run will kick off at New York's Beacon Theater on January 25, and culminate with a hometown show at Portland's Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on February 19. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, November 19 at 10 AM ET. Now you have something rockin' to do in January.

    The band will also embark on a European Tour from March 4 through 16.

    Gillian Welch has been announced as a special guest joining The Decemberists when they perform the new album's lead single "Down by the Water" on Conan O'Brien's newly launched late show Conan on TBS this Thursday, November 18. "Down by the Water" will be released digitally tomorrow November 16. A pre-order of The King is Dead will launch at here beginning November 22.

    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. he album features Welch on seven tracks and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck on three tracks.
