The indie-rockers of Vampire Weekend have stayed quiet in the music scene since their 2013 hit record, but after four years, a handful of dates have been announced, along with a new album on the horizon.
Aside from festival appearances at Chicago’s Lollapalooza, the UK’s End of the Road Festival, Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, and Splendour in the Grass in Australia, two U.S. dates have been revealed. They will play two shows during Father’s Day Weekend in Ojai, California at the Libbey Bowl. One will take place on Saturday June 16 and the next morning, they will take the stage on June 17. Richard Pictures, featuring Jake Longstreth of Time Crisis will open both shows.
According to Stereogum, Vampire Weekend revealed in Instagram comments that they are 94.5% done with their new record. This new LP will be a follow up to Modern Vampires of the City, which was released over five years ago. Fans are assuming that the band will play songs from their upcoming fourth album.
The band advised fans hoping to attend one of the Father’s Day weekend shows that it would “probably [be] worth catching both ;).”
