First off, thanks be to Pitchfork for the lead. Secondly, this is big...at least for us. Sure, I know we are only a few of Will Sheff’s thousands of devoted minions. But we’d also consider ourselves fairly fine connoisseurs of Okkervil River’s hopelessly addicting batch of emotional, folkish fare. Sure, they may be down a man with Jonathan Meiberg’s recent departure for Shearwater exclusivity. But this here river continues to flow fine and mighty, apparently rolling right on downstream to an already completed 5th studio album.

While details are a little thin, here’s at least what we know now. The album is titled The Stand Ins, and it’s a thematic follow-up to last year’s brilliant The Stage Names. Jagjaguwar will once again handle the record, and it will hit stores on September 9th. Stay tuned to Baeble as more becomes available – David Pitz
