Well, this makes sense.
P4K is reporting that the Decemberists are transforming their conceptual The Hazards of Love album into a full-length animated video titled, Here Come the Waves: The Hazards of Love Visualized. Thankfully the band did not draw the entire film with their quill and ink, instead they used the services of Guilherme Marcondes, Julia Pott, Peter Sluszka and Santa Maria to animate and "accompany individual sections of music from the album." The entire video will be available for purchase exclusively from iTunes sometime soon. In the meantime, enjoy the cool looking trailer posted above.
