The Walkmen will reunite for a pair of shows at New York’s Webster Hall. The band’s first official performances in a decade will take place on April 26 and 27, 2023. Watch a trailer for the concerts below.
In a press release, Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser said of the reunion:
The Walkmen’s last album was 2012’s Heaven, and aside from a one-off show at an NBA All-Star Game in 2014, they have not played live since their 2013 tour. Since then, Leithauser has released Black Hours and The Loves of Your Life, as well as the Rostam collaboration I Had a Dream That You Were Mine. He also collaborated with his Walkmen bandmate Paul Maroon on Dear God.
Maroon, the Walkmen’s guitarist, shared Instrumental Music in 2020. More recently, he collaborated with Jenny Lin on 13 Short Piano Pieces.
Walkmen bassist Peter Matthew Bauer has released three solo studio albums since the band began its hiatus: 2014’s Liberation!, 2017’s Mount Qaf (Divine Love), and, this September, Flowers.
