This week, we thought The Decemberists were appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the recent release of their latest album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, but they totally pulled a funny fast-one on us by revealing a host of new material we never expected to hear.
Turns out, Colin Meloy & Co. have allegedly put together an entire LP consisting of YouTube comments taken from some of the video site’s most captivating clips, including but not limited to:
We understand this whole thing is a big goof, but if the band did indeed put out an entire album of YouTube comments, we might actually buy it because these jams are catchy.
In fact, how are we supposed to look at videos of “Horrible Boat Crashes” without hearing Meloy’s mellifluous voice crooning, “OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH, NO WAYYYY.”
The band will be on the road from now until the beginning of July, at least. A full list of dates can be found on their site.
The Decemberist’s new album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, is out now on Capitol Records. To get more updates on the band, follow @TheDecemberists.
