Okkervil River Announces New Album <i>The Silver Gymnasium</i>

This week, Okkervil River revealed their new album Wheel of Fortune-style for us (letter by letter), with fans tweeting guesses left and right, until we all read together The Silver Gymnasium or, “Yes, finally,” in our own words. Although leaving us in the ringer for details on their new album, the band left nothing up to the imagination gig-wise and have already announced their 2013 tour dates to promote the album.

The U.S. tour will kick-off with a performance at Monterey’s First City Festival in August, stopping off at many major cities on both coasts in the following months. Tickets for all new tour dates go on pre-sale June 12, and a general sale starts June 14. Okkervil River will release their new album on Sept. 3 via ATO Records.

Keep checking the band’s website for new information on The Silver Gymnasium.
