A Summer Tour For The Decemberists

The Decemberists 20th Anniversary Tour

The Decemberists will mark their 20th anniversary with a summer tour. The Twenty Years Before the Mast Tour starts July 28th in Montana and wraps up August 22nd in Nashville. Tickets go on sale Friday.  The band's first EP, 5 Songs, was released in 2001, The Decemberists say their first show was in 2000 and that "a clerical error in the initial logo design listing the band’s establishment as 2001 has caused confusion for -- and here we go again -- nearly twenty years."

Sam Smith has a new single on the way -- and a pop-up store. The song, "To Die For," will be out Friday. Sam has teamed up with YouTube for the pop-up store, which is open today through Friday in the Soho section of London.  "To Die For" is Smith's first original single since last summer's "How Do You Sleep?"

Tears for Fears' 1985 album Songs From the Big Chair will be profiled in a BBC Classic Albums documentary that debuts Friday night in Britain. No word yet on whether Netflix or any other U.S. network will pick it up for our side of the Atlantic.
