UPDATE: Vampire Weekend has added a New York City show to its tour list. This hometown set will take place April 28 at Roseland Ballroom. There’s an American Express presale (Thursday, March 28, at 10 a.m. through Friday, March 29, at 10 p.m.), a fan presale (Friday, March 29, at 10 a.m.) and a venue presale (Friday, March 29, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.), but if you’re not one for doing things in advance, the general sale is March 30 at 10 a.m.
We already knew Vampire Weekend’s third LP was set for release on May 7 via XL, but now we’ve got the title, art and tracklist. The band tweeted “NYT Classifieds…” earlier this morning, and the newspaper’s “Notices & Lost And Found” section did indeed include a post from the band that reveled the album title: Modern Vampires Of The City.
The band soon put out an official press release containing the rest of the details on the follow-up to 2010’s Contra. Vampire Weekend also announced that it will be embarking on an international tour that starts at SXSW in Austin, TX, in March. Find the full details below.
