The Walkmen in Camden, July 2010
The Walkmen

"Lisbon, the fifth album by critically acclaimed band The Walkmen, is due September 14 with iTunes pre-orders beginning August 10. The album's first single "Angela Surf City" is currently available via iTunes. This summer and fall the band will embark on a nationwide tour in support of the record including newly announced stops in Montreal (October 8) and Chicago (October 13).

The band will also be appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on August 12, the same day they perform in New York City at Governors Island with Grizzly Bear. Additionally, they [were] on WNYC FM's Soundcheck on August 10 at 2:30pm EDT;

Lisbon was recorded over a two-year period in warehouses on Girard Ave. in Philadelphia and on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn." [PR]

As that blurb points out, you can catch the Walkmen twice tonight - first when they open for Grizzly Bear on Governors Island (the sold out show that Gang Gang Dance is also opening) (update: day-of-show tickets were just released), and second on Fallon on your TV.

The Walkmen's recent appearances included the WNYC thing and Camden's XPoNential Music Festival in July. The pictures in this post are from the latter. More of them, along with a stream of the WNYC appearance (which includes new songs), updated tour dates (many with Japandroids), and info on how to take the ferry to Governors Island tonight (8/12), below...

2:29 what are you smoking? One of the few original bands left out there..

If the boring, turgid albums I've heard represent "one of the few original bands left out there," 2:41, I think you need to see a doctor immediately.

The Walkmen are easily one of the best most consistent bands of the 00's

3:56..I think you are the one who needs to see a doctor because you must have a massive buildup of earwax and are deaf..sure the sound of your thoughts in your head can be boring and turgid..

4:05, okay!

No, but I do OWN several Walkmen albums and they are dull.

im leaving after GGD, rain or shine.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 6:10 PM

6:03 why would you own more then one if they are dull to you...sounds stupid to me!

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 6:48 PM

i have an open mind and wanted to give the band another chance

the walkmen sadly sucked tonight. GGD and Grizzly Bear were mind melting.

Posted by Anonymous | August 13, 2010 3:02 AM

3:02 you are an idiot. all hands and the cook was 2x as mind melting as anything by the other bands - though Grizzly Bear has definitely improved their live show substantially. The songs from Lisbon were fuckin incredible live.

Walkmen stole this show.
