Okkervil River Announce More Dates this Fall for World Tour


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Okkervill River are continuing their year of 2006 domination of the world. They've added dates this Fall for Australia and the US. The band has already spent a good part of the spring on tour.

2006 has been a busy and promising year for the band, as they signed to EMI in Europe and rereleased Black Sheep Boy and Black Sheep Boy Appendix as a double disc set in Europe.

Okkervil River went into the studio in February to record new songs for release on their current US home of Jagjaguwar Records. When that was completed, Will Sheff promptly took the band out on the road for three months because he wanted TO WRITE MORE MATERIAL.

Jagjaguwar wants to release the material from the February session, comparing to the Stones Exile on Main Street or Bob Dylan & the Band's Basement Tapes. Okkervil River says no way, it's material for the vault.
