The Walkmen are set to release their sixth album (not counting the covers album they did) June 5. They recently played “Heaven,” the title track from the album, on an episode of “+1” for Pitchfork.tv on YouTube. Before the performance, band members Pete Bauer and Hamilton Leithauser reminisced about an old rehearsal space in Philadelphia, just yards from where they were filming the “+1” segment. Their former rehearsal space was located next to methadone clinic and rented from a guy named Ratface (a “really nice guy” according to Bauer).
