Roky Erickson With Okkervil River

True Love Cast Out All Evil

(Roky Erickson, Okkervil River)

Anti 87078

Released on April 20, 2010



Legendary musician Roky Erickson triumphantly returns with True Love Cast Out All Evil, his first new album in fourteen years, produced by Will Sheff from Okkervil River, and featuring Will and Okkervill as Erickson’s backing band. True Love Cast Out All Evil is comprised largely of unreleased songs that Austin native Erickson wrote throughout his decades-long career – detailing with heart-breaking candor a harrowing life that has included shock treatment, imprisonment, mental illness, and irreversible loss. With a wisdom that can only be marshaled by someone who has been through all of this, Erickson also interjects the songs with love, hope, and spiritual grace. While True Love Cast Out All Evil echoes the many musical styles in which Erickson has been a participant or a pioneer – including garage-rock, lo-fi psych, heavy metal, and countrytinged Texas folk – it also moves Erickson into new territory, foregrounding his songwriting skill. In these songs, Erickson addresses his troubled history in his own words, eschewing the metaphors of earlier songs like “I Walked with a Zombie” to speak directly about hardship and the lessons learned from it. Will Sheff’s production highlights the songs while interweaving them with found-sound and archival recordings culled from Erickson’s home videos and recordings made in the Rusk State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. This is not a cynical comeback record, a lukewarm update on an established legacy – these are the best songs Roky has ever written, unreleased due to decades of personal problems.
