The Walkmen Celebrate Their Past With New ‘Heaven’ Video
The Walkmen have released the video for their latest single, ‘Heaven.’ The clip takes viewers down memory lane with photos and footage archiving the band’s history.
It’s hard not to feel sentimental when watching ‘Heaven’ and witnessing the Walkmen’s journey from playful children antics to successful indie rockers. Video of the group’s days in high school bands and early Walkmen shows are also included, as well as their current life on the road.
‘Heaven’ is the title track from the Walkmen’s seventh studio album, which was released this week. Produced by Phil Ek (Built to Spill, the Shins, Fleet Foxes), the record celebrates 10 years of the Walkmen being a band. “He wouldn’t let us get away with our usual garbage we normally do in terms of playing off beat and half a–ing it,” bassist Peter Bauer told Paste about working with Ek.
The Walkmen are currently on the road in support of ‘Heaven,’ with stops including Barcelona, Spain; New York City; Berlin, Germany and more. They will join Florence + the Machine as the support act starting July 20 in Vancouver, Canada. All tour dates can be found on the band’s official website. Read Diffuser.fm’s review of ‘Heaven’ here.
