Fat Possum Recording artists the Walkmen announced a tour with Father John Misty.  The Walkmen will be coming to Columbus on 1/17 as they play the Newport Music Hall on January 17th.  I believe this will give me over two months to elicit some sort of twitter response from Father John Misty.

The Walkmen are releasing a Dance With Your Partner/Vermeer 65′ limited edition 7″. The release is limited to 1000 copies and will be available on Tuesday, November 6th.

Listen: The Walkmen – “We Can’t Be Beat”

This low-key track is from The Walkmen’s new record, Heaven, produced by Phil Ek and out May 29 on Fat Possum. In the press release, singer Hamilton Leithauser says, “The detachment you can feel throughout our younger records is gone. We felt like it was time to make a bigger, more generous statement.”

The Walkmen

I’m really enjoying this WOXY Live Session with The Walkmen. A little stripped down because of some broken gear, but it sounds great. Sometimes I forget how much I love The Walkmen. It’s those times in my life where I am a dick. Download it here.

For $5 You Can Get The New Walkmen Album + Fight Cancer

MP3: In the New Year by The Walkmen

If you read more than two music blogs then you probably already know that The Walkmen are offering their new album, You and Me, for only $5 via Amie St. What makes this worth writing about is all the proceeds of the purchase goes towards a charity of the band’s choice.

“All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease. This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention.”

The band is heading out on tour in August, including a stop in Columbus.
