As if this year’s Record Store Day wasn’t already proving to be a bounty of exclusive releases from a plethora of fine artists, The Decemberists are offering up their own release in the form of a limited-edition seven-song EP entitled Live At Bull Moose. The release, recorded at the Scarborough, ME branch of the Bull Moose music store, features songs from the band’s latest LP, The King Is Dead, and a cover of The Louvin Brothers’ “If I Could Only Win Your Love”. As with every other RSD release, that is available at fine independent music retailers on April 16th.

In other news, the band has added additional U.S. tour dates for June. Along with already-announced gigs including those at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, Colin Meloy and co. have new shows scheduled for Brooklyn, NY, Philadelphia, PA, and Raleigh, NC with indie favorites Best Coast providing support.
