Okkervil River Returns in September

Okkervil

Remember them? It’s been awhile. We do—check a few choice video blasts from the past.

 Okkervil River new album on ATO Records, The Silver Gymnasium, is slated for a Sept. 3 release. (The album’s name was revealed somewhat pretentiously letter-by-letter this past week on Okkervil River.com but we’ll give ‘em a pass for that and chalk it up to some overzealous intern marketer’s brainstorm—we still love Okkervil, after all…) Full details soon, as the saying goes.
