NYC United States
NYC’s gentlemen masters of skeletal rock and tales of dejection. The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser on their journey so far.
Rising from the ashes of _(artist-name)Jonathan Fire*Eater_, one of the most hyped bands around at the time, _(artist-name)The Walkmen_ are one of the quintessential New York City bands. From the start their often skeletal arrangements and Hamilton Leithauser’s world-weary wail set them apart from the pack, making their debut album _(album-title)Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone_ an unlikely success when it dropped in 2002. From covering full albums by Harry Nilsson to full blown successes like 2010’s _(album-title)Lisbon_ and 2012’s _(album-title)Heaven_, it looks like this particular brand of Walkmen is never going out of style.
