The Walkmen may not be around any longer, but the band’s former lead singer Hamilton Leithauser has no intention of slowing down. Leithauser already has a new album, Black Hours, and fans of The Walkmen are sure to love it. The album runs the stylistic gamut as Leithauser and his ace backing band (featuring members of Fleet Foxes and The Shins, among others) play stately piano ballads and driving rock ‘n’ roll. Leithauser’s always been a live presence, and he seems even livelier and freer on his own now. His tour behind Black Hours finds him coming to The Echo in Los Angeles. We’re all for new beginnings, and Leithauser’s is well worth your time. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit The Echo’s website.
