June 12, 7:30 pm | The Fabulous Fox Theatre | $35 – $85

Recently, Vampire Weekend released the songs “Harmony Hall” and “2021″ from their upcoming fourth album, Father of the Bride, to an ecstatic critical reaction including:

“Sprawls out with lush symphonies, communal vibes aplenty”—Billboard 

“Wraps misgivings in three-chord elation”—The New York Times (Playlist lead)

 

“A vibrant romp that seamlessly blends folksy fingerstyle guitar, ’90s rave music, a gospel choir, baroque piano, and the Grateful Dead… it’s absolutely delightful”—Stereogum

Father of the Bride will be released spring 2019 on Columbia Records.

 

In other news, congratulations are due to Vampire Weekend and XL Recordings on the band’s eponymous debut album being certified Platinum by the RIAA for U.S. sales in excess of 1,000,000.

 

Vampire Weekend was released January 29th, 2008 by XL, and debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. In addition to being newly certified Platinum in the U.S., the album has previously been certified Platinum by the BPI in the UK, and Gold by Music Canada and ARIA in Australia.

 

The first band to grace the cover of SPIN magazine before an album was even released, Koenig, Baio, Tomson and former member Rostam Batmanglij met in 2005 at Columbia University in New York City.  “Even without an album, Vampire Weekend has made one of the year’s most impressive debuts,” said The New York Times of the band’s earliest recordings.
