When the Boston Calling music festival revealed its spring 2014 lineup earlier this year, one name was noticeably cryptic: a mystery guest slated for stage time on May 24.

Crypticism, be gone. The folks at Crash Line Productions revealed this morning that indie-folk rockers The Decemberists will fill the previously unnamed slot. It’ll be the group’s first performance since Jan. 2011.

The Portland, Ore.-based group had hits with “Down By the Water” and “This is Why We Fight.” Check out their 2011 album, “The King is Dead,” for more tracks.
