The Decemberists have teamed up with four filmmakers—Guilherme Marcondes, Julia Pott, Peter Sluszka and Santa Maria—to create an hour-long animation for their most recent album, The Hazards of Love. The band has officially released the trailer for their upcoming event, on October 19, where they will perform the entire piece synchronized with the animation, as well as an additional second set of old songs and new material. The show will take place at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus.
