The Decemberists to play Peoria

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

Indie rockers The Decemberists are set to play in Peoria this spring. 

The band will play with Tennis at the Peoria Civic Center Theater on Wednesday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. The band is releasing their eighth album, "Ill Be Your Girl," on March 16. 

The Peoria stop is part of the band's Your Girl / Your Ghost 2018 World Tour, which kicks off March 22. 

“When you’ve been a band for 17 years, inevitably there are habits you fall into,” says Colin Meloy, frontman for the Decemberists. “So our ambition this time was really just to get out of our comfort zone. That’s what prompted working with a different producer and using a different studio. We wanted to free ourselves from old patterns and give ourselves permission to try something different.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. at the Civic Center box office, on Ticketmaster, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
