The Walkmen will release their brand new album, ‘Heaven’, on June 4.

The New York band worked with producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Modest Mouse) on their seventh album, which features Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold contributing harmonies to two tracks.

Of the follow up to 2010’s ‘Lisbon’, frontman Hamilton Leithauser says: “We felt like it was time to make a bigger, more generous statement…”.

“There can be something brittle about our sound,” bandmember Paul Maroon said. In regards to working with Phil Ek he added: “He made it just a little bit warmer, a little bit stronger. When I play it in my car, it sounds strong, which I love.”

The Walkmen marked their 10 year anniversary with a series of anniversary shows in the US earlier this year. They released their debut LP ‘Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone’ on vinyl for the first time ever in January.

Only 1,000 copies of their 2002 debut were pressed for the vinyl release. Further information can be found about the record at Thewalkmen.com.
