Okkervil River Announce
Fall Tour, Follow Up Album
for The Stage Names

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

We'll soon get hear part deux of the set of songs that were originally released as Okkervil River's The Stage Names. The album was almost a double set until the decision was made to divide it up into two separate releases.

 

“We had so many songs we were excited about that we briefly threw around the idea of just putting out a double record. Instead, we decided to take a group of songs that fit with each other and turn that into The Stage Names, setting the rest aside for a future release, a The Stage Names sequel. The Stand Ins is that sequel, part two of a staggered double album," said singer-songwriter Will Sheff about the release.

 

The Stand Ins was recorded in Austin and produced by Brian Beattie and Okkervil River. It will be released on September 9th via Jagjaguwar Records. October 13 in the UK and Europe.
