The Silver Gymnasium is the seventh album by American indie rock band Okkervil River, released on September 3, 2013.

The record is a concept album which takes place in lead-singer Will Sheff's home-town of Meriden, New Hampshire in 1986.

Okkervil River's first release for the ATO label is a concept album about innocence and youth, showing a kid's first glimpses into the adult world. It's set in the 1980s and comes with a map of Will Sheff’s hometown of Meriden, New Hampshire, showing where each song takes place. Okkervil River's first release for the ATO label is a concept album about innocence and youth, showing a kid's first glimpses into the adult world. Physical copies of Okkervil River’s eighth album- their ATO Records debut- include a map of frontman Will Sheff’s hometown of Meriden, New Hampshire, designed by the band’s long-time visual artist William Schaff. Points on the map correspond to songs on the tracklist to show where each is set.

Sheff sets Okkervil River's seventh album, The Silver Gymnasium, square in the heart of his own childhood; in the specific spot that produced his most sepia-toned memories.

The Silver Gymnasium. Released September 3, 2013. The Silver Gymnasium Tracklist. 1. It Was My Season Lyrics. The Silver Gymnasium is a loose concept album centered around singer Will Sheff’s hometown, Meriden, New Hampshire. Here’s how Sheff described it in an interview: I feel like most of what I wanted to say about my childhood is there in the album. Furthermore, I’m not sure I made this record because I wanted to say anything about my childhood so much as I made it because I wanted to talk about nostalgia and about childhood in general, and it felt more productive to use my own childhood as the model.
