The Decemberists New Video ! "O Valencia" [04 Feb 2007|11:13pm]


The new video for "O Valencia!" has its premiere on MTV2's Subterranean on January 22nd @ 1AM EST on MTV2.

Fresh from their controversial guitar duel with Stephen Colbert, these indie contenders have a brand-new video that proves they're the true champions. Watch them triumph as "O Valencia" makes its video premiere!

Plus several of their other videos (The soldiering Life, Sixteen Military Wives, and a new interview with Colin!). And the video quality is far superior to You Tube!

Are you sick of all the ridiculously poor-quality videos of Colin and Company on You Tube?


Well, our collective dreams are about to become reality. 

The Decemberists will be releasing a DVD on Kill Rock Stars on March 20, 2007. 

It's called
The Decemberists: A Practical Handbook and it features the band live at the Roseland Theater in Portland, OR from 11/4/05, as well as the documentary Paris Before the War, and multiple music videos, etc.

Colin mentioned the cartoonist Tony Millionaire in his Christmas list.

What are your favorite past gifts?
A piece of original art by (cartoonist) Tony Millionaire.

Millionaire is a cartoonist of an assortment of off-beat characters and a very unique style.

Here’s his web-site


And a great interview, with biographical info:

For two issues now Colin Meloy has written a sidebar in Rolling Stone Magazine. Here is this month's installment!




Colin Meloy



What’s on your wish list this year?


A dehumidifier for my studio.


What are your favorite past gifts?


A piece of original art by (cartoonist) Tony Millionaire.


What gifts do you plan to give?


When I worked at a bookstore, everyone on my list got books- Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood is essential reading. Now that I’m in a rock band, they still get books, with a Decemberists T-shirt thrown in.


How much will you spend?


I tend to think anything over fifty dollars is a little crass- except for one’s girlfriend, for which there is no limit.


Where do you shop?


I try to buy at local Portland (Oregon) shops as much as possible. Powell’s Books, Reading Frenzy and Jackpot Records are my favorites.


Do you ever buy more stuff for yourself?


A little bit here and there. I always end up buying left-handed presents for my girlfriend. Half the non-lady-stuff presents I buy for her end up in my possession anyway.

The Decemberists Counter-Counter-Challenge To The Second Stephen Colbert Green Screen Challenge [08 Dec 2006|01:36am]


Your favorite fake rabid right wing late night host Stephen Colbert updated the status of his Green Screen Challenge tonight by announcing that The Decemberists have issued a counter-counter-challenge, a live guitar duel on TV, calling him out, telling Colbert to put down the pen and pick up his axe.

 It’s ON!

 The Decemberists will make a live appearance on The Colbert Report on December 20 for the final guitar duel face-off!

 If you are anywhere in the vicinity of NYC (you lucky bastards!) you should avail yourself of free tickets to that show at your earliest convenience.

 They will go quick!

The Second Stephen Colbert Green Screen Contest [29 Nov 2006|10:57pm]

Stephen Colbert just announced a new contest on the Cobert Report (on Comedy Central), The Second Stephen Colbert Green Screen Contest, calling upon all video editing enthusiasts to edit his green screen video (of Colbert playing with a Star Wars Light Saber) into a Decemberists green screen video contest just offered on MTV.

For the next few weeks he will be playing their video with him edited in, disrupting the groove, at least once a week.

I would guess the Decemberists will be present at the final award presentation. George Lucas showed up for the first, of Colbert hacked into Star Wars.

saw the decemberists for the third time this past friday in seattle. the paramount was PACKED, i have never seen it that full before. my friend and i were lucky to grab seats in the second to last row on the third balcony, and we got there less than an hour after doors opened! they were amazing, as always, but i was surprised that they only played for about an hour. plus, the opener only played a few songs apparently. anyone know why this is?

A Warning [17 Aug 2006|11:07am]

Ok guys, I know you're excited for the Decemberists' new album The Crane Wife, but you're not going to find links to download the album here. The band has expressly told their opinion on file-sharing in the past (more specifically when Picaresque leaked online) and I'm going to hold their wishes and forbid the sharing of any album in its full form here.
Also, don't leave comments like "if you want the album IM/email me" in any form or you'll be kicked out of the community. this is serious.

The Crane Wife is out October 3rd. It's not that far away guys.
