The Walkmen To Deliver Heaven in June
The record is the band's sixth and was produced by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Shins, Band of Horses) in Seattle.
On May 3, they will headline The National-curated Crossing Brooklyn Ferry at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. In July, they will support Florence And The Machine on their North American tour.
When describing Heaven, 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."
