Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride -- April 2019

Vampire Weekend have shared two new songs, “Harmony Hall” and “2021.” It’s the first we’re hearing from the band’s fourth album. After much speculation, the initials FOTB have been revealed to stand for Father Of The Bride.

In a Beats 1 interview, Koenig revealed that former member Rostam Batmanglij worked on “Harmony Hall” and one other song on the album, and Greg Leisz plays the guitar solo on “Harmony Hall.” The VW frontman also talked about how “2021” samples music that Japanese composer Haruomi Hosono made for Muji in the ’80s as background music for their stores. Ariel Rechtshaid co-produced both songs with Koenig.

Last week, Koenig took to Instagram to reveal plans for a double album — 18 songs, about 59 minutes long — that will be out in April. “Harmony Hall” and “2021” are the first in a trio of two-song drops. The other pair of pairs will be released in the coming months.

FOTB is the band’s first album since 2013’s Modern Vampires Of The City, and their first without the full-time participation of Batmanglij.

I liked their first two albums but never listened to their third. Kinda forgot about them.

Shit, that third album, Modern Vampires of the City is like my favorite album of recent years. I absolutely LOVE it.

Will have to listen to these tracks at lunch today when I get a moment. Excited for the new album

Way more laid back, but Harmony Hall is absolutely great. I hope the majority of the album is like this track.

I'm guessing they'll be going on tour again soon. Last time when Modern Vampires of the City came out, they stopped by ACL Fest. For me, it was by far the best show that year.

I honestly forgot about them. I did love Contra though. Glad they are back.

YES! My son and I are pumped they will stopping here.

I am always amazed how random routes concert tours take, some seem so inefficient.

No Vegas either And they won't be in L. A. until after my daughter goes away for college so for her graduation present I will be flying her back to her birth place of Indianapolis and see Vampire Weekend there. Turning into a pretty freaking expensive concert for a lawn show. Thanks Ezra
