Roky Erickson Announces SXSW Performances and Tour Dates

In anticipation of the April 20th release of his new album True Love Cast Out All Evil via Anti-Records, legendary psychedelic-punk rock godfather Roky Erickson, along with acclaimed cohorts Okkervil River, will be performing several shows at the celebrated South By Southwest Festival in Austin Texas. After the album's release Erickson and Okkervil River will head out for selected appearances across the country.

True Love Cast Out All Evil is Erickson's first new album in fourteen years. Produced by Will Sheff with Okkervil River backing, it is an inspiring and artistically riveting musical document of Erickson's lost decades and heroic journey back. After burning so bright with seminal band the 13th Floor Elevators, Erickson seemed all but lost to personal demons. He fittingly interjects the new songs with a sense of hope and resilience that makes for an intriguing story and, even more, for some powerful and moving music.

You can view a candid and informative video interview with Erickson conducted by Will Sheff detailing Erickson's musical history and the recording of the new album here: http://www.truelovecastoutallevil.com
