PORTLAND -- The Decemberists are releasing a two-disc live album in March, announced just months after they wrapped up their 2011 tour in Portland.

The album will be released on March 13 and is titled We All Raise Our Voices To The Air (Live Songs 04.11-08.11), according to the band's website.  The new album will feature live performances from across America, including two shows from August at McMenamins Edgefield Amphitheater.

Some of the songs featured on the new album include hits from their 2011 album, The King Is Dead -- which debuted at No. 1 in the Billboard 200 for the first time in the band's history -- including "Down By The Water" and "This Is Why We Fight."

The Decemberists are also up for two Grammy Awards: Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for "Down By The Water".  The 54th Grammys will be held in Los Angeles on Feb. 12.
