Download New Music From Okkervil River




Austin's Okkervil River is going to release their new album next month, and it will be their first since 2005's Black Sheep Boy. They also just finished up an amazing performance at ACL last weekend. To support the new release, the band is going to hit the road starting October 3, and wrapping up October 22. Additionally, Will Shef will be playing three solo dates after the band finishes the tour.

While we patiently wait for Okkervil River's new album to come out in October, the band has offered up a download of their newest tune, "The President's Dead." Check it out below, and be sure and pick it up on limited edition 7" form.
