Father Of The Bride (Vinyl)

Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend have now confirmed a May 3rd release date for ‘Father of the Bride,’ the highly anticipated follow-up to the Grammy-winning ‘Modern Vampires of the City!’


The 18-track album features the current single “Harmony Hall” as well as new track “Sunflower” featuring Steve Lacy of The Internet.

‘Father Of The Bride’ closes a six-year gap since 2013’s ‘Modern Vampires Of The City’ - a period during which the band’s Ezra Koenig was anything but idle: In addition to touring the world and winning a Best Alternative Grammy for ‘Modern Vampires,’ Koenig released his Netflix anime series Neo Yokio, continued to host his Time Crisis show on Beats1, co-wrote and produced Beyonce’s ‘Hold Up,’ all the while living the experiences and observations that would inform the next Vampire Weekend album.

Vampire Weekend made their sixth visit to Australia in 2018 headlining Byron Bay’s annual Splendour In The Grass Festival. The announcement of Father Of The Bride is sure to spark much anticipation locally, as Vampire Weekend’s first two albums have achieved Gold certification in Australia.

Father Of The Bride’s title is something Koenig chose years back, well before recent significant developments in his life. In typical VW fashion, the title has multiple layers of meaning, expressing the band’s signature paradox: creating songs that easily find a home on any playlist-or car radio, TV show, film soundtrack, airport PA, etc.- but reveal their complexities upon closer listening.
