Okkervil River's sixth album, I Am Very Far, was released on 10 May 2011. To promote the album, the band went on tour in 2011 with Titus Andronicus, Julianna Barwick, Future Islands and NewVillager
Okkervil River were gradually improving their public profile when they became Texas rock legend Roky Erickson’s backing band. Together, they assembled the album True Love Cast Out All Evil, a brilliant comeback record that taught the group a few subtle lessons. I Am Very Far is, arguably, the band’s tightest record to date. There’s a simplicity here that turns songs such as Rider and Lay of the Last Survivor into direct hits. Will Sheff rarely overdoes his vocals and when he does allow a greater theatrical flourish, he pulls it off, . the punchy We Need a Myth.
The goal was to push my brain to places it didn't want to go. The idea was to not have any idea – to keep myself confused about what I was doing," frontman Will Sheff says about Okkervil River's newest album 'I Am Very Far’. It’s a startling break from the band’s previous work: terrifying and joyous, violent and serene, grotesque and romantic, it's a celebration of forces beyond our control. The goal was to push my brain to places it didn't want to go.
