The Walkmen

Hamilton Leithauser - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

You may know Hamilton Leithauser as the vocalist and guitarist for the band The Walkmen, who are currently on “extreme hiatus” as of this year. But Leithauser had no intention of taking a break from writing, and thus recorded his first solo album, Black Hours, which is being released today. Leithauser recently stopped by Studio A to perform some of his new songs and to talk with me about the inspiration for the new album.

Take Five with The Walkmen... and CMJ

by Sarah Wardrop

We're pretty excited about our first CMJ showcase tonight (7-10pm at The Living Room; stop by or listen live on FUV), but anything called a "music marathon" means there are a LOT of other shows going on too. One is The Walkmen's CMJ set at Terminal 5 on Thursday, so on today's Take Five, we offer up a little flashback to the band's latest visit to Studio A to hang out with Eric Holland. Other good news: The Walkmen have two new songs to check out—either as freebie vinyl at Terminal 5 (if you get there early), non-freebie vinyl set for release in November, or an online listen now.
