The Walkmen Announce Tour With Father John Misty

Fat Possum Records is excited to announce that The Walkmen are touring in January with Father John Misty. The Walkmen kick off the tour on January 11th in Philadelphia at Union Transfer, and will be joined by Father John Misty beginning at the following show on January 15th at Corona Theater in Montreal. The tour wraps up at Commodore Ballroom on January 28th in Vancouver. In conjunction with the announcement, The Walkmen are debuting two videos from their release show for their latest full-length Heaven, a uniquely intimate show live-streamed by Spotify and filmed by La Blogotheque.

The Walkmen are releasing a limited edition 7", featuring the previously unreleased tracks "Dance With Your Partner" and "Vermeer '65." The release is limited to 1000 copies and will be available on Tuesday, November 6th. CMJ premiered the tracks. Pre-order is now available at Insound and Fat Possum.

NPR said that Heaven finds the band "[continuing] to refine and mature its increasingly stately, deliberately paced sound," while Pitchfork called the album "gloriously pretty." Stereogum praised the record listing it as the #2 'Album Of The Year So Far' and noting "Heaven is the elegant, understated, utterly gorgeous new album from the Walkmen, and it may well be their best."
