Critically acclaimed rock band The Walkmen are set to play in select U.S. markets this spring in support of their Fat Possum Records debut Lisbon, including a run of co-headlining dates with The New Pornographers. Along with a successful North American run and appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and PBS’ “Sun Studios Sessions,” the Walkmen capped 2010 with performances in New York City at Terminal 5 and Washington, DC at the 9:30 Club. Please see below for a complete list of dates.

Lisbon continues to garner critical acclaim, topping many year-end best-of lists. Named the #2 album of 2010 by The Onion, Lisbon is amongst the top records of 2010 according to outlets including NPR’s “All Songs Considered,” Pitchfork, SPIN, Filter, Under the Radar, Aquarium Drunkard and Gorilla vs. Bear. Scanning over 13,000 units in its first week of release, Lisbon entered the chart at #27 making it the band’s highest debut on the Billboard Top 200.

The Walkmen’s fifth album, Lisbon was recorded over a two-year period in Philadelphia and Brooklyn. A few songs that helped establish the record’s tone were written during several inspiring and successful trips to Lisbon, Portugal. You & Me engineer Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Les Savy Fav, Tokyo Police Club) worked with the band from August to February, and then in March of 2010 the band traveled to south Dallas to finish the album with John Congleton (St. Vincent, Explosions in the Sky).

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.

On March 31st, you can buy a digital copy of the new Death Cab For Cutie EP “The Open Door”. It has five tracks (four brand new songs and an unreleased demo track). You can buy a physical copy at one of the band’s tour stops starting on April 5th at the Sound Academy in Toronto, Ontario and in stores on April 14th. “The Open Door” includes a demo version of “Talking Bird” (originally on last year’s “Narrow Stairs”).

Here’s what bassist Nick Harmer told MTV.com about the album:

“When we finished ‘NARROW STAIRS, there were four extra songs that, because we were trying to put together an album, we ended up not including — it’s not like they’re castoffs or anything; they’re part of the ‘NARROW STAIRS’ experience. They needed to have a proper home, and the EP is it.”

The band also announced summer tour dates starting with a show at the Hollywood Bowl on July 5th where they’ll perform with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Ra Ra Riot, Andrew Bird, Tegan and Sara, and the New Pornographers will support. The band’s about to begin their spring tour April 5th in Toronto.
