This past week, Okkervil River began teasing us by revealing the title for their forthcoming album letter-by-letter on their website. Now, the full title has been announced, and it’s… The Silver Gymnasium. The follow-up to the band’s scaled-back 2011 release, I Am Very Far, The Silver Gymnasium will be released via ATO on September 3.
 
The full-length is the band’s seventh, and we can only hope Will Sheff has been feeling sufficiently dark. Okkervil River will embark on a headliner tour in support of the new album with a kickoff performance at Monterey’s First City Festival in August. Tickets for the tour go on pre-sale June 12. Check out the dates below.
