Shaky cam footage of the last few minutes of our slow version of “For Real” from “Orchestral in 2007” - our first volume of the #adreaminthedark live album series.
Okkervil River Apr 08, 2019
If anyone ran into issues with “A Dream in the Dark” being sold out this weekend it’s back up now! Link is below and the live-request email for “Golden Dreams” subscribers/ticket purchasers will be going out later today! This is the front cover for the first release in the series, “Orchestral in 2007.” It’s a multi-track recording made immediately after we finished “The Stage Names” and features the live debut of some of those songs as well as some popular tunes from our previous albums (including a very old song from our self-released debut “Stars Too Small to Use”) alongside a Fugs cover and a slow version of “For Real” that I’m really proud of. We’re joined by a live string and brass section and backing vocalists. It sounds pretty massive. The liner notes contain excerpts from my journal around that time, detailing the show and the completion of “The Stage Names.” Go to to learn more about it.

The early response to the “A Dream in the Dark” live-album series has been so heartwarmingly incredibly awesome! Very very sincere thanks to everyone!! Folks in the “Golden Dreams” tier who also pre-ordered a show ticket are gonna be getting an email on Monday to submit their song requests. Heads-up that we got a landslide of requests in LA, Chicago, NYC and Cambridge so as of today (April 4) we’ve had to close those shows to any more requests! All other markets are GOING FAST so if you want to guarantee your song will be performed you should head to the Golden Dreams Subscription ASAP!! Love you all. #adreaminthedark #raritiesandrequests2019

We’re bringing the Rarities & Requests tour back this summer!

Okkervil River Apr 02, 2019 Ok, here goes. “A Dream in the Dark: Two Decades of Okkervil River Live,” tells the story of Okkervil River’s 21-year existence through 12 live albums released digitally once a month for a year. Each album comes with comprehensive liner notes featuring new essays, journal entries, interviews, archival photos and more. Subscribers to the series will also get really cool physical rewards, early access to pre-sale tickets for our 2019 “Rarities & Requests” tour (and a guaranteed request on that tour), and more! I’ve been working on this project for quite some time and I’m beyond thrilled to finally let the cat out of the bag. The first show we’re making available is us with a live string and brass section and backup singers which was multi-track recorded in 2007, immediately as we finished “The Stage Names.” At the top of every month we’ll be adding a new album, jumping back and forth thru time. It’s gonna be so so great. Come aboard! #adreaminthedark
