Vampire Weekend heads to Bend in 2020 in support of their fourth album, Father of the Bride.
Father of the Bride closes a six-year gap since 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City—a period during which the band’s Ezra Koenig was anything but idle: In addition to touring the world and winning a Best Alternative GRAMMY for Modern Vampires…, Koenig released his Netflix anime series Neo Yokio, continued to host his Time Crisis show on Beats1, co-wrote and produced Beyonce’s “Hold Up”… all the while living the experiences and observations that would inform the next Vampire Weekend album.
Father of the Bride’s title is something Koenig chose years back, well before recent significant developments in his life. In typical VW fashion, the title has multiple layers of meaning, expressing the band’s signature paradox: creating songs that easily find a home on any playlist—or car radio, TV show, film soundtrack, airport PA, etc. — but reveal their complexities upon closer listening.
