Okkervil River fans can stop the anagram guesswork after the band confirmed the title of their seventh studio album, due out on September 3rd.
The Texans have been drip-feeding the title letter by letter during the past few days, but have now brought everything together by confirming the title will be ‘The Silver Gymnasium‘.
A lengthy run of North American headline dates and festival appearances have already been arranged in time for the album’s release, and begin with a spot at the First City Festival in California over the weekend of August 24th-25th.
Running right through into November, the long trip ends in Chicago with a show at the Metro.
