Riding high on the release of their latest full-length album I Am Very Far, Okkervil River have had a busy summer. Just this month Okkervil River released a new 7-inch for "Your Past Life As A Blast." You can listen and download the lead single below. Back in June, Okkervil River joined with IntoTheWoods.tv at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR for a rare performance of "I Guess We Lost" a b-side from the I Am Very Far recordings. Check out the gorgeous video of the performance above.
Starting next week Okkervil River will be back on tour in North America. They kick things off with a string of west coast dates with the Decemberists. From there they embark on a headlining tour with Wye Oak in support through the rest of North America, including dates at the Virgin Mobile Freefest, Fun Fun Fun Fest, The Midpoint Music Festival, Nor'Easter Festival, and the Soundtown Music and Camping Festival.

Check out their new video here!
