Yes, Mary-Jean, according to Rolling Stone the Decemberist’s 6th Album (Reportedly baring the title Hazards of Love)will be no simple piece of Indie music storytelling, but will in fact be an epic rock opera the likes of which have not been seen since… well, awhile ago, at least.

What makes this news even more fabulous is the following:

“At first, Hazards of Love was going to be an actual musical, staged by director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). The story that Meloy came up with, however, was “practically unstageable,” the frontman says.”
