Okkervil River Announce Tour

    Will Sheff and company clearly enjoy spending most of their time on the road. Even though they wrapped up a joint tour with Titus Andronicus last month, Okkervil River has already announced more gigs for the next two months. They will be sharing a few bills with the Decemberists in the Northwest before heading to Spain and the United Kingdom. And after a few days off, they will head back to the U.S. to play a slew of theater shows and several festivals, including Truck America.
