The Walkmen - 'We Can't Be Beat'
Following the release of three tracks from their upcoming LP Heaven, The Walkmen have added another song to listen to in the form of 'We Can't Be Beat'.
Although they're one of my favorite bands, I have a feeling that we're in for a great album when it will be released later this month on the 29th. Stream the track below.

"We really just have no idea," says bassist/organist Peter Bauer. "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. [read more]
