A Dream in the Dark is a collection of twelve digital live albums spanning two decades – from Okkervil River’s earliest shows up to the present day. It presents a comprehensive history of the band through the lens of concerts instead of studio albums, and it draws from a massive archive of recordings catalogued by Will Sheff and by fans throughout the years. Each installment of the series comes with detailed liner notes, including essays, journal entries, interviews with band-members past and present, and copious archival photographs. The liner notes are presented in both written and podcast-style audio format. Subscription to one of the two tiers of A Dream in the Dark also gives you access to additional rewards detailed below.
