The Walkmen’s “Final” Show in New Orleans

SOURCE: PITCHFORK

After advertising their final show last December, The Walkmen are back once more for the Rock On Foundation’s first All-Star party. This is presumably their last show. However, according to frontman Hamilton Leithauser, we’ll probably just see them less consistently in the following months. Stream their last performance above and read Leithauser’s speech at the concert below.

“These guys are my best friends. It’s not easy to knock us down because we have like five or six final shows, right? Like we have one and then we have another and we have another and then we have another. And then we have a reunion and then we have another reunion and then we have another reunion. ‘Cause why the hell not? It’s so fun playing with these guys. These guys are the best. Anyhow, you know what? This is the end. This is the last thing we’ll ever do. But this is great. This is the first song we ever wrote together.”
