Ezra Koenig gives an “update” on Vampire Weekend’s LP4

every day I get comments & questions about the next Vampire Weekend album. obviously, we gotta take our time & get it right but the fans deserve some information. I know it feels like it’s been an eternity since the last one but time…is strange. this is what’s been happening:

2013- MVOTC release
2014 – still touring/promoting
2015 – mental health year (putting 3 albums in stores was taxing), worked on a vibey project you’ll hear abt soon
2016- writing LP4, long days in the library researching w/ the grad students
2017 – recording, trying to finish ASAP what else can I tell you without playing myself? hmm, it’s a lil more springtime than the last one. guitar’s not dead. there are songs (currently) called “Conversation” & “Flower Moon.” Flower Moon is hard to finish but I think it belongs on the album. working title is still Mitsubishi Macchiato cuz it is a helpful concept. I should probably stop there cuz all of that information is subject to change & I can’t tell you the really good stuff anyway 🍍🔥🍍🎶🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘🌚


June 12, 2014, Red Hat Amphitheater, Raleigh, North Carolina

Vampire Weekend had their last venue show for this MVOTC tour at the Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh, North Carolina and the band was kind enough to let us cover the show. Our journey with MVOTC started in 2011 and to be given such a privilege is an honor for us.

We would like to thank the dubs for always being so supportive and helping to arrange this whole thing (and for the rad backstage hang!) Special thanks to their tour manager and production coordinator for being so nice and accommodating.
