The Walkmen "We Can't Be Beat"

2012-05-08

 

Welcome the release of "We Can't Be Beat," the lead track from The Walkmen's upcoming album Heaven, in stores May 29th.  The record is the band's sixth and was produced by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Shins, Band of Horeses) in Seattle.  You can pre-order from Fat Possum or over at The Walkmen's website

When describing Heaven, singer Hamilton Leithauser portrays a band hitting maturity, comfortable in its mastery, after a decade together.  "The detachment you can feel throughout our younger records is gone.  We felt like it was time to make a bigger, more generous statement."
