- We have no future plans whatsoever. I’d call it a pretty extreme hiatus. I don’t think any of us wanted to write another Walkmen-record. Maybe that will change down the line, maybe it won’t, maybe we’ll play shows. I think it’s weird to make a hubbub about something if there’s nothing to really make a hubbub about. At the same time, I don’t think we’ve been a gang properly for a long time, so there’s not much to break up, I guess. I think it’s cool that we’re all still pals and all. It’s nice to be removed from [being a band] and to be friends, or something like that, and to see what happens from there. It’s been almost 14 years now. I think that’s enough, you know?
The Walkmen’s organist m.m. Peter Bauer til Washington Post onsdag, op til Verdens Bedste Band’s for nu sidste to shows, lørdag i Washington og onsdag Philadelphia. Blandt flere Walkmen-soloprojkter under opsejling meldes mest interessant frontfigur Hamilton Leithauser klar med sit solodebutalbum til foråret. På det medvirker også Walkmen-guitarist Paul Maroon. Men venner….det her er overordnet sønderskudte-banegårde-forbandet skibskatastrofe-dårligt nyt!
