Vampire Weekend Announce First Show in Four Years

Here's hoping for new music

Vampire Weekend have announced their first live show in four years since taking a hiatus.

This comes the same week as the 10th anniversary of their debut self-title album. Within a six year period, the band released three critically praised records (and one Grammy nomination), toured the world and helped shape the sound of college indie rock in the late 2000s and early 2010s.

The band’s first upcoming show will be at End Of The Road festival in the UK, between August 30th and September 2nd alongside St. Vincent, Feist, Yo La Tengo and more.

In early 2016, Rostam Batmanglij quit the band to persue a solo career. That same year he put out a collaborative record with Hamilton Leithauser, and has since been working on his first solo effort.

Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig also updated fans on LP4 a few months back, saying it’s about “80% done”. So if you’re looking to hear some never-heard-before tunes from the band, you might want to head to Larmer Tree Gardens this summer.
