new Walkmen album stream & updated dates w/ new NY show

The Walkmen on Governors Island in August (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
The Walkmen

“We took two trips to Lisbon over the course of writing this record… None of us had ever been there, and we were really blown away by the place. The topography and architecture are stunningly handsome. Even when we were there for the rainy season – it literally never stopped raining – it was a trip that outshone a lot of others. We’ve never had much luck at all in Europe, and the Portuguese were surprisingly accommodating. I think those two trips really helped keep us motivated while making this record. We named the record Lisbon as sort of a ‘thank you’ and a small tribute.” -[The Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser to NPR]

The Walkmen, currently on a tour of the west coast, will return to the town that inspired the album on November 14th. That’s exactly two months after the album’s U.S. release date. “Lisbon” is out Tuesday, September 14th, in various packages that include 7″ vinyl, 12: vinyl, CD, tees, and everything in between. It’s also currently streaming at NPR.

The last NYC show took place on Governors Island in August. The next will happen at Terminal 5 on December 2nd. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday (9/15), and then regular sale at noon two days later.
