The Walkmen have extended their 2023 reunion tour, today announcing fall tour dates, including Nashville, Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, Portland, Oakland, LA and Toronto shows. All dates are listed below.
The band's tour was on the West Coast this weekend with festival appearances at Pasadena's Just LIke Heaven and Salt Lake City's Kilby Block Party, and picks up again on Wednesday in Chicago to start a four-night stand at Metro, followed by a four-night stand in DC, then Boston Calling, then an intimate show at DC's new venue, The Atlantis.
The Walkman kicked off their tour with five nights at NYC's Webster Hall.
While the band say those fall dates are likely to be it for 2023, that may not be the end. Stereogum points out that Peter Matthew Bauer wrote a note to fans via The Walkmen's mailing list, writing, "We are just getting going and I’m not really sure we want it to end. I will say, after being the dummy who I guess broke the band up last time saying something about an ‘extreme hiatus,’ I’m going to avoid saying anything like that again. I will say, what makes it all special is when you don’t know what’s going to happen next and when you can actually wonder if this is the last time you’re ever going to get the chance to do this. Everything feels ragged and lively which is what all of us thought was good about the band in the first place."
The band did just sign to Verve Records, but what exactly that means remains to be seen
