Before seeing them open up for Fleet Foxes last autumn at the Williamsburg Waterfront (which really was more like co-headlining, let's be serious) I had almost forgotten completely about The Walkmen. Thankfully I was reminded of them and have essentially been waiting for an album announcement ever since. Well that day's arrived. The Walkmen are releasing their seventh studio album in June. Their new album titled Heaven will be released June 5th and if the two minute teaser and news that Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold is featured on one of the songs it might be a bit of a departure from the buzzy rock sound the NY quintet is known for. I have no problem with this and am now entering anticipation mode til the first single.
