The Walkmen announce tour with their long-lost dad, Father John Misty

The Walkmen announce tour with their long-lost dad, Father John Misty

The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser walked into his front yard. It was 2 PM, he had just woken up. Late for some folks, but that didn’t matter to Hamilton; The Walkmen weren’t going on tour for months. This was his vacation and he was going to enjoy it.

Clad in boxers, a Jonathan Fire*Eater t-shirt, and a plaid robe, Leithauser walked to his mailbox. He wasn’t expecting anything, but he hoped for something interesting. Inside, there sat a single, thin letter. Hamilton removed it from the box and looked at it with curiosity. No return address. “What could this be,” he thought, as he tore open the envelope. His eyes widened as he stared at the handwritten letter in his hands.

“Dear The Walkmen, I am your real father. My name is Father John Misty. Isn’t it strange that my name is Father and I’m your father? That is very strange. Anyhoo, we should go on tour together, guys! Toodle-loo!”

Hamilton dropped the letter. “Oh man!” he shouted. “I’ve gotta call the guys!”
