The good news keeps coming for fans of New York indie band Vampire Weekend, this time in the form of another tour stop.
The band will take their Father of the Bride Tour to Salt Lake City on Sunday, Oct. 6. The pre-sale is happening now right here on AXS, with the general on sale to follow on Friday, Feb. 8, at 10 a.m. A stop at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre was also announced last week, closing out a tour that's set to run from early June until October.
After a long teaser, Vampire Weekend announced new music with the songs "Harmony Hall" and "2021," a preview of highly anticipated fourth album Father of the Bride, the band's first full-length in six years. While they haven't revealed the release date, frontman Ezra Koenig has been dropping snippets of information gradually, including the fact that it'll be an 18-track double album. He has also promised a regular stream of songs leading up to the album release, with two tracks set for release every month.
Koenig was also spotted recently along with actor Jonah Hill at New York stores Barney Greengrass and Zabar's filming a music video said to show a day on the city's Upper West Side, according to a crew member.
