Something to look forward to post summer; October 13th sees Okkervil River’s new full-length album released.
Entitled The Stand Ins, the record will be available in the UK via Jagjaguwar. The album is the sequel to 2007’s much fawned-over The Stage Names.
We're duly informed that The Stand Ins was recorded in Austin and produced by longtime collaborator Brian Beattie and Okkervil River. The album features 11 songs and includes the track 'Lost Coastlines', on which Sheff and recently departed Jonathan Meiburg of Shearwater share a duet "on the joys and hardships of trying to keep the band together."
