The Decemberists share new single 'Oh No!'

With their eagerly-awaited new album now less than a month away, The Decemberists have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Oh No!' comes accompanied by a brilliant live video, recorded at Hallowed Halls, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Burial Ground', 'All I Want Is You' and 'Joan In The Garden' in previewing their new LP 'As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again', which is out on the 14th June via YABB Records (Thirty Tigers).

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Colin Meloy said, “Oh No!” is the sort of song that just tumbles out of you. It all started with the first line — “It was on a wedding night / How they danced by the firelight” — and flowed from there. In my mind, the narrator of the song is channelling the two brothers from Emir Kusturica’s immortal film, ‘Underground.’ This song is about causing havoc, causing chaos, its narrator forever followed by an even greater form of chaos, a great darkness. But it’s a darkness you can dance to!”
