okkervil river 2013

Although we here at BPM weren’t crazy about Okkervil River’s last full length, I Am Very Far, we are still huge fans of the band, even placing their album Black Sheep Boy on our best albums of the 2000s rundown.

The Texan band returns with their 7th album this year. The LP is called The Silver Gymnasium and is set for release on September 3rd. Notably Okkervil River have jumped labels from Jagjaguwar to ATO Recordings for this release.
