The Walkmen are back, announce NYC reunion shows
The Walkmen, whose last shows were at the end of 2013, have announced they're getting back together to play a couple hometown NYC shows at Webster Hall on April 26 & 27.
Says frontman Hamilton Leithauser: "Back in 2013, an unnamed Walkmen band member (Peter Bauer) announced to the Washington Post that we were going on an 'extreme hiatus.' I assumed that meant there would be a lot of monster energy drinks and maybe that red-headed snowboarder guy would be hanging around a lot…but none of that actually happened. Instead, in the ensuing years we’ve all worked on a ton of different projects in a ton of different places. Recently, someone sent us a clip of us playing at Irving Plaza from 2003, and it just looked very exciting. So, we’ve decided we’d like to play together again... See you soon."
UPDATE: The Walkmen added two more NYC reunion shows.
