Austin-based indie folk rockers Okkervil River has announced tour dates in support of its upcoming release I Am Very Far out on May 10 via Jagjaguwar. After playing four shows in three days in its hometown for SXSW, along with a supporting date for Grammy winners Arcade Fire, the band will be joined by supporting act such as Titus Andronicus for the rest of the tour.



The five-piece led by frontman Will Sheff debuted in 2005 with Black Sheep Boy, which brought attention to Sheff’s forte in writing lyrics accompanied by catchy indie folk hooks and instrumentation. Sheff puts more of his specialties on display with I Am Very Far acting not only as the lead singer and songwriter, but also as the producer and arranger for the album.



Other supporting acts Future Islands, Julianna Barwick and NewVillager will join Okkervil River and Titus Andronicus on select dates throughout May and June.
