The Decemberists To Unveil Here Come The Waves: The Hazards Of Love Visualized


09/16/2009
.
(PR) The Decemberists' album The Hazards of Love was released by EMI's Capitol Records in March to rave reviews with NPR calling the album an "epic adventure" and SPIN writing that it "yields spectacular sparks," adding that it contains "some of the snarliest, bluesiest, rockingest moments in The Decemberists' catalog." The raves continued when the band hit the road for their "A Short Fazed Hovel" tour with Pitchdork calling the live performance "a triumph," The Wall Street Journal declaring it "a remarkable experience," and New York Magazine naming it the "Indie Rock Show of the Year."

On October 19, The Decemberists will unveil Here Come The Waves: The Hazards of Love Visualized, a special project that takes their ambitious and acclaimed song cycle to new heights for it's final American performance at UCLA's Royce Hall in Los Angeles. This unique live experience will feature The Decemberists in collaboration with four filmmakers—Guilherme Marcondes, Julia Pott, Peter Sluszka and Santa Maria—each of whom have created animation to accompany a section of the music. Presented in association with Flux, the event will also be a benefit for The GRAMMY Foundation®'s Grammy In The Schools music education programs for high school students.

At Royce Hall, The Decemberists will perform the entire piece synchronized with the animation, as well as an additional second set of older and newer material. A limited presale will begin at 10:00am PT on Wednesday, September 16 at http://www.decemberists.tickets.musictoday.com. General tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 18. The band will also kick off the final leg of their "A Short Fazed Hovel" tour this week.
