Permanently rumpled New York indie greats the Walkmen have found themselves a new home. The band has signed to Fat Possum. And right now, they’re in the studio working on the follow-up to their great 2008 album You & Me. Chris Zane, who engineered You & Me, is once again serving as engineer and mixer, and the band is producing the album themselves.
Even though they’re hard at work in the lab, the Walkmen have a few live shows coming up. On March 3, they’ll play the opening of the Armory Show art fair in New York City, which also serves as a benefit for the Museum of Modern Art and P.S. 1. On March 17, they’ll truck down to Austin to play NPR’s SXSW Showcase at Stubb’s with Spoon and other bands to be announced. And on April 1, they’ll play new songs at Brooklyn’s Bell House (via pfmedia)
