The Walkmen to go on 'extreme hiatus'

The Walkmen to go on 'extreme hiatus'

After releasing their album Heaven last year, The Walkmen are set to go on an "extreme hiatus" after 13 years and seven albums, bassist Pete Bauer has revealed.

“We have no future plans whatsoever. I’d call it a pretty extreme hiatus.”

Bauer goes on to be pretty brutal about his outlook of the band, citing how there's "not much to break up".

“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.”

He added: “We really just have no idea. 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. ”

We have seen them a few times, and are generally big fans here at SupaJam, so it's a little upsetting. What do you think?

Singer Hamilton Leithauser is currently working on a new solo LP.
