Okkervil River @ Lollapalooza

On the heels of last year’s “The Stage Names,” its best seller to date, Austin-based rock act Okkervil River returns Sept. 9 with another Jagjaguwar album, “The Stand Ins.”

The 11 tracks here were mostly culled from material written and recorded during “The Stage Name” sessions, with the exception of one “Singer Songwriter,” which was recorded during a recent tour with the New Pornographers.

Frontman Will Sheff says the band opted not release a double album combining “The Stage Names” in “The Stand Ins” primarily because “I don’t like double albums and I really wanted to make a short record. Everybody in the band felt the same way. It was just the case of making a short record and feeling attachment to the songs — and putting out a part two.” [Billboard]

Okkervil River announced a lot more tour dates since the last time I posted dates. Tickets are still on sale for the two shows at Webster Hall. All dates and more pictures from Lollapalooza below…
