The Decemberists have announced a Summer 2022 North American tour ARISE FROM THE BUNKERS.
Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy described the upcoming tour in a note to fans:
“We’re wiping away the accumulated grime from windows and revealing, for the first time in a very long time, the glimmer of sunlight. We see the green dappled leaves, the soughing tree limbs, the pearly clouds dotting a wide sky. Is this re-emergence? Perhaps!
In celebration of such an event, we Decemberists felt a bit antsy to revisit the wide-open road, and do it sometime in the summer months, where we can sometimes be outside. Ergo: we are proud to announce The Decemberists’ first tour since — god, what was it — 2018, I think. ARISE FROM THE BUNKERS! TOUR 2022.
We’ll be applying our rusty fingers, feet, and vocal cords to songs from all across the width and breadth of our catalogue — and, should the muses oblige, we might try a few new ones out as well.”
Public on-sale begins Friday, January 28 at 10am local time. The band will also offer pre-sale and VIP packages, which can be purchased beginning tomorrow, January 26, at 9am PT.
The Decemberists have partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket goes to supporting organizations that are working to ensure access to reproductive rights for all. Visit decemberists.com/tour for more ticketing information.
