The Walkmen Announce Fall Tour with Fleet Foxes

The Walkmen will hit the road this fall with Fleet Foxes in support of their critically acclaimed album Lisbon, available now on Fat Possum Records.

The tour builds on successful North American runs and appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.” The band has received critical acclaim from NPR Music, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, GQ, SPIN, Pitchfork, The Fader, New York Magazine and many more.

Having grown up playing together in various bands since the fifth grade including New York’s Jonathan Fire*Eater and Boston’s The Recoys, the Walkmen broke through in 2002 with their debut album Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone. 2004’s Bows & Arrows featured indie rock anthem “The Rat,” which Pitchfork recently named the #20 song of the decade. In 2006 the band recorded a song-by-song cover of Harry Nilsson and John Lennon’s 1974 classic Pussy Cats as a farewell to their Harlem studio space Marcata.
