For the first time since their “brief” hiatus in 2013, American rock/indie band The Walkmen are finally reuniting for the first time in a decade! The Walkmen will only perform for two nights at Webster Hall, a nightclub in New York City, New York, on April 26 and 27, 2023.
Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser recently discussed the reunion and said:
“Back in 2013, an unnamed Walkmen band member (Peter Bauer) announced to The Washington Post that we were going on an “extreme hiatus.” I assumed that meant there would be a lot of Monster Energy drinks and maybe that red-headed snowboarder guy would be hanging around a lot… but none of that actually happened. Instead, in the ensuing years we’ve all worked on a ton of different projects in a ton of different places. Recently, someone sent us a clip of us playing at Irving Plaza from 2003, and it just looked very exciting. So, we’ve decided we’d like to play together again. Right now, we are very thrilled to announce that we will be playing at Webster Hall on April 26 & 27. See you soon” (Pitchfork).
