Fat Possum Records is pleased to release "We Can't Be Beat," the lead track from The Walkmen's upcoming album Heaven, on May 29th. The record is the band's sixth and was produced by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Shins, Band of Horses) in Seattle.
The Walkmen just celebrated their 10th anniversary and are still comprised of the same members that started the group in 2001 - drummer Matt Barrick, multi-instrumentalist Pete Bauer, singer Hamilton Leithauser, guitarist Paul Maroon and bassist Walter Martin. The Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold sings harmonies on two songs on the record.
