with a full national US tour kicking off. "A Hundred Miles Off...is the Walkmen's best yet"
- ELLE "The Walkmen's third full-length proves this is a band for the ages. Joining a post-motorcycle-crash Dylan vocal delivery with a Springsteenian of-the-streets spirit, whiskey-soaked singer Hamilton Leithauser leads his band through a set of rousing, sharply focused, late-night pleas and barroom romps that take the group well beyond its garage roots."
"Opener 'Louisiana' imagines Bob Dylan fronting the Velvet Underground..."

"NYC's finest deliver superb performances...tight as hell"
Today marks the release of The Walkmen's third studio album, A Hundred Miles Off. The follow up to 2004's critically acclaimed Bows & Arrows was recorded over the course of two years at the band's Marcata Studios in New York and Inner Ear Studios near Washington, D.C.
A Hundred Miles Off is without a doubt our most solid effort yet," says singer/guitarist Hamilton Leithauser, "After touring for so long, we couldn't write songs for the longest time. We went back to Inner Ear Studios in DC where I used to work and worked with our old friend Don Zientara (Bad Brains, Nation of Ulysses, Fugazi). We really got things going last summer, and we spent all fall and the holidays writing, recording and traveling between DC and NY. We finished it up at Marcata--our place in Harlem--this January. We're all sure it's the best record we've done so far."
