The Decemberists will give a concert at Brewery Ommegang on July 26, promoter Dan Smalls Presents announced Tuesday morning. The folk-rock band will play with special guests Lucius. 

Tickets, at $35, will go on sale Friday. Camping passes (limited to 1,000) will be available for an additional $15 per person. 

The band's appearance in Cooperstown is part of a tour that kicks off Tuesday with a concert in Pittsburgh. Other regional shows, including concerts in New York City, Boston, Buffalo and Philadelphia, are sold out, according to the group's website. 

The Portland, Ore., band was founded in 2000 and released its debut EP in 2001. The band has since released seven full-length albums, most recently "What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World," which came out in January. The band's song, "Down By the Water" from the album "The King is Dead" was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 54th Grammy awards. 

Brooklyn-based indie pop band Lucius released its debut album, "Wildewoman," in 2013. The Guardian featured Lucius as its New Band of the Day in 2014 and described it as "the missing link between Arcade Fire and Haim."
