Okkervil River to Release New LP, To Come To Your Town; Night To Fall To the Ground

Texas' best sextet Okkervil River are back and going on tour this September in support of their fourth full-length release, The Stage Names, due August 7 on Jagjaguwar. The album was recorded in Austin with co-producer Brian Beattie, mixed by Jim Eno of Spoon at his studio Public Hi-Fi, and will be the first we've heard of Okkervil River since 2005's Black Sheep Boy.

The band will be turning 10 next year, and you're all invited to their birthday party. <3
