In support of their most epic release to date, The Decemberists have announced a bulk of the second leg of the “A Short Fazed Hovel” 2009 tour. Hazards of Love was released March 14th on Capitol Records and reads more like one work than a collection of songs, a la 2005’s The Tain EP. Beginning in Seattle on July 17th, several acts including Andrew Bird and Blind Pilot will support the Decemberists as they move south to Portland and then head east.

For each date, the band will play Hazards of Love in its entirety—complete with Lavender Diamond’s Becky Stark and My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden on their proper vocal parts. A second set comprised of older material will follow each performance.

On April 27th, before they set off on the first leg of the tour with varying supporting acts, the band will be appearing on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. And considering the last appearance in 2006 featured guitarist Chris Funk in a ShredDown with Peter Frampton, all bets are sure to be off.

Full ticketing information can be found on the Decemberists’ offical website, http://www.decemberists.com.
