The Walkmen – a new album & 2008 Tour Dates (2 x Bowery)

The Walkmen @ Noise Pop 2008 (more by Ryan Muir)
The Walkmen

The Walkmen are playing two shows at Bowery Ballroom in NYC in August, then two shows in LA, and then a few other shows in other places – all right before they release their fifth album this Fall on Gigantic….

Writing and recording of You and Me happened over a vibrant and rigorous 2-year period, during which the members of The Walkmen were split between Philadelphia and New York. The band rode Chinatown busses five days a week to work in two small rehearsal spaces (an old nightclub in Chelsea, New York and a warehouse in Fishtown, Philadelphia) to freeze by the kerosene heater in the winter, and sweat it out in the summer. By the time of the record’s pressing there were over four hundred cast-off 8-track tapes littering both spaces.

Tickets are already on sale for the LA shows. The NYC shows go on sale Wednesday. All tour dates, new album tracklist and cover art below…..
