Celebrating over two decades of pioneering music, The Decemberists have carved out a niche for themselves as one of the most original, daring, and thrilling American rock bands since their inception in 2000. With nine full-length albums to their name, the band has explored a vast array of sounds, from Americana-leaning epics to elements of '70s prog and hard rock, continuously defying genre boundaries.

The Decemberists return to the stage with their first new music in six years, "Burial Ground." This latest single, already embraced by fans during live performances, marks a new chapter for the band, blending the jangle-pop influences of The Dentists with the dreamy harmonies of The Beach Boys, and featuring contributions from The Shins' James Mercer. Songwriter Colin Meloy's inspiration for "Burial Ground" came from a melody that visited him in a dream, proving to be a rare gem that successfully transitioned from dream to reality.

The upcoming concert at Mission Ballroom is not just an opportunity to experience The Decemberists' new music live but also a chance to revisit the classics that have defined their career. With more new music on the horizon, the band is set to continue its journey as one of the most innovative acts in indie music.

Don't miss your chance to see The Decemberists live in Denver this July. Secure your tickets early and be part of an unforgettable evening of music and storytelling.
