Led by singer-songwriter Will Sheff, Texas-based folk rock band Okkervil River recently released Away, the group’s first album in three years. Now on tour in support of the record, the outfit will visit Club Helsinki on July 16.

Formed in 1998, Okkervil River snagged the ears and pens of earnest music critics beginning with their 2000 debut Too Small to Use. The group’s reputation grew when they signed to the hip Jagjaguar label for the roundly praised Down the River of Golden Dreams (2003) and Black Sheep Boy (2005; rereleased as a deluxe box set in 2015); their place in rock lore was assured when they collaborated with legendary 13th Floor Elevators front man Roky Erickson for 2010’s True Love Cast Out All Evil.

The single from Away is the enigmatically titled “Okkervil River R.I.P.”:

Okkervil River will perform at Club Helsinki in Hudson, New York, on July 16 at 9pm. Bird of Youth will open. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 day of show. For more information, call (518) 828-4800 or visit
