Okkervil River release video for 'Okkervil River R.I.P.'
American alt rockers Okkervil River have released a new video for ‘Okkervil River R.I.P’.
The release offers a meditative glimpse into the band’s first album in three years, ’Away’ out on 9 September.
The video was written and directed by the frontman Will Sheff and stars Tim Blake Nelson, who is known for his roles in ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?’ and ‘Lincoln’. The short film shows him as a priest directing the funeral of a dead, but still singing Sheff.
Okkervil River will also be back on tour later in the summer and into the autumn. This includes a special show at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust. There will also be a UK tour in November.
