Vampire Weekend will promote their upcoming fourth LP, Father of the Bride, with a massive North American tour. The 35-date trek kicks off May 17th with a slot at Alabama’s Hangout Music Festival and launches in full on June 5th in Toronto, Ontario; after a month-plus break in July, the second leg begins August 16th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and concludes October 8th in Denver, Colorado. Vampire Weekend have yet to detail the full tracklist for the long-awaited album, which follows 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City. The band recently previewed the 18-track record with two new songs, “Harmony Hall” and “2021,” and they plan to issue two additional sets of songs before the LP’s release date. Father of the Bride, the group’s first since the departure of longtime multi-instrumentalist/producer Rostam Batmanglij, is their first to feature guest vocalists. “We’ve had three albums of the same voice over and over again,” singer Ezra Koenig told Rolling Stone. “I like the idea of opening up our world a little bit.”- By RYAN REED
